Baby Surprise Jacket Almost Done
But, isn't this sweater cute? I am incredibly impressed with myself at how the striping pattern I totally made up randomly is working out absolutely perfectly for the BSJ! My buttonhole band looks especially good, because I diverged slightly from the instructions so that there is not an irritating extra purl ridge on one side. This makes my purple and green stripes look all perfect. I just have a few more rows to go, albeit long ones. I am thinking I will crochet neatly around the neck, and perhaps do a decorative 3-needle bind-off on the shoulder seams. I like the way that looked on the Wrap Me Up shawl.
My next goal is to make another one in a self-striping yarn with more decorative increases and decreases. Then, orange sweater!!!
