Baby Surprise Jacket Completed

Yes, I actually do knit and here is the proof. I totally love this pattern. I'm surprised at how fast I turned it out. The BF was even impressed. The only problem was the buttons.

Baby Sweater -- Anyone recognize the pattern?

I picked up this little baby sweater at our church's harvest festival last fall with the hopes of recreating it. To be honest, however, I've decided I'm too lazy to work it out.

What do you do with leftover acrylic?

You can knit a shawl.

This is the "steeples" lace pattern - in an offset (first 4 repeats) and regular variation; done as a double down shawl.

Any ideas for Circular Lap Blanket?

I made the Hemlock Ring blanket for a Christmas gift. And would like to make 2 more different types of round lace-ish lap blankets.

Here are the two squares I managed to get done. Kyle should have them on Monday, so I hope they're not too late.
