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.

Sharing another passion of mine

I don't know how many of you know Keith Olbermann or if any of you have seen his show or listened to his commentary. He makes me laugh often and I love his commentaries.
