Good God, I finished something!!!


OMG!!! I finished something!!! Addison's EZ Baby Surprise Jacket out of my very own handdyed, carded, handspun yarn!!! I'll have to wait until she wakes up to take a picture of her in it. Darn it, she's asleep at 1:00 am like a good little baby should be! I'm up because I wanted to finish her jacket before summer! I'm not that great of a knitter, but this was a really easy pattern and knits up fast. I've been working on it for a month now...off and on. The fiber is the mill end rovings I got from The Sheep Shed Studio. I blended it with lots of Angelina that refuse to photograph, but trust me...the sparklies are there. The yarn I spun up worsted weight at 12 WPI, so the jacket is heavy. It's very soft, and I can't wait to try it on her. (NO, mustn't wake up a perfectly sleeping baby!!! Her mom would kill me!)
