2008 - FO No. 51



This is for my god-daughter's birthday which is in January. She will be 1 year old and I thought this jacket was the perfect color for her. I knit the fluffy yarn onto the cuffs and edgings so it would be more girly. Dont girls like fluffy edgings on their clothes when they are little, well some do.


Pattern: Peter Pan Double Knit Book 280, design 6

Yarn: Holiday wool blend, about 5 balls

Fluffy yarn: 1 ball and a bit

Started: October sometime

Finished: December 16th

The ladybug buttons are from stash. Luckily I had 10 of them in the bag.

So cute and it will look even cuter on a little girl. Not that the wearer will notice.
Amazing the way you manage to finish projects.

That jacket is so cute!

Did you plan on one FO for every week of the year or is that just a coincidence? Whichever way, congratulations on a great year of knitting/
