In February a few of us started a knit along at my office. We decided to knit Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket. We figured that since it's all garter stitch, it would be easy enough for beginners. We thought that knitters who had never made a sweater would find the size manageable, and the unique construction would keep us all interested. The fact that none of us had babies seemed to matter at the time. We were all excited to jump in for our first knit along. Two and a half months later, our 10-member group is down to five and we've completed only two sweaters. Ah well, we may lack motivation, but we're certainly having a good time. We meet once a week at lunch time to knit (or crochet--we're a welcoming group), talk yarn, and just hang out.
Even though this cardigan felt like it took forever to knit, I'm happy with the results. The deep yellow hue is sure to brighten up some future winter day. I couldn't find my stash of yellow buttons (they must still be hidden in a box from our move), so I chose gray buttons instead. Yellow and gray never gets old.
My (still nameless) bunny looks a little bare, doesn't he? I think he's wishing for a canary cardigan of his own. :)
