EZ #8

Tomorrow is what would have been Elizabeth Zimmermann's 100th birthday, and I find it fitting that I just finished one of her most classic designs - the Baby Surprise Jacket.   I used a few cheater row count sheets I found online to keep track of what I was doing, and I doubt I would have done as well without them.  However, next time I knit this pattern (and I definitely will make more!), I think I'd be okay without the spreadsheets.  I get it.  It's genius.  I did get a lot of weird looks while knitting this floppy piece of garter stitch.  I also want to make a crazy wild stripey jacket next time.  This one is a bit boring knit mainly with Patons Classic Merino Wool in paprika and a grey stripe of Cascade 220 - all leftovers from past projects.  Now on to find some sweet wooden buttons

Happy Sunday!

Love it! It looks so cozy. I have yet to try this pattern, but I really think I need to!

Cute sweater! I can't believe she would have been 100 tomorrow! That's crazy! Thanks for the little bit of trivia!
