Several years ago Rowan put out a baby & kids knitting book called Pipsqueaks. It’s a great collection and, although I have only made one pattern out of it (“Lucky”), I’ve made that pattern several times. Unfortunately, my recent obsession with Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Baby Surprise Jacket (BSJ) made me forget about it.
Two of my friends from college, however, recently had their second baby (a gorgeous little girl) and I wanted to send them something. The BSJ I was working on was far too “boy-ish” so I needed something else and “Lucky” seemed like a good choice.
There are a few biffs, but all-in-all I’m pretty happy with it:
Hopefully it’ll fit lil’ Penelope Grace well and keep her warm on a few of the cold spring evenings still ahead of her.
I doubt Jen & Kev bother reading my blog, but if you do, I blocked it tonight and it’ll spend the night drying. It should be in the mail by the end of the week!
