Just a short note to add my latest FO the Baby Surprise Jacket!

I really put on the express needles for this one - I was dying to see how it would turn out because truthfully, halfway through the pattern, I had no idea it was going to turn out.

Here it is unfolded.

Here's a quick look at the pick up sitches at the end. I fluffed my counted halfway to the project and had to make it up a bit as I go along so the pick up stitches don't exactly align to the decreases. Or in layman terms, the lines don't line up so well.

And here it is folded and yet unseamed

To tell you the truth, I didn't think it was going to be so small... I used DK weight yarn (Sirdar Sunggly Magic) and only about 250 yds and it's probably big enough for a 1-3 month old but no older.

Now it's back to the sleeves of my circular cardigan.

BTW there was a kniting meet up in the weekend but I saved the photoes on my home pc. You can find out what we did at Lyn's blog .

Back to the surface

Sorry for being MIA in the last 3 months. My internet connection at home as been non existent and it has been finally restored last week. Blogging from wokr is not longer possible in the new fast paced job that I am in now.

I have been knitting sporadically and for the last week have been frantically trying to get this off the needles so I can get started on the crochet edging

I love the yarn which is Buttefly Super Cotton - but - I don't know why the center looks like a volcano.

Anyone can tell me why??

I've also been make some slow progress on aEZ's Tomten jacket for my friends new baby!

This is going to be a cutie!

Oh and I have been spending way too much time on Ravelry!
