Remember the Baby Surprise Jacket I was knitting last fall? I was knitting with my friend Kerri’s handspun, for a surprise gift for a mutual friend. When I sent it back, she took it to the NY Sheep and Wool Festival (Rhinebeck!) with a third crafty friend, Bernard, to choose buttons. You can see the backstory here (and progress pics).
Kerri lives in Massachusetts, so the BSJ has been across the country twice. The baby recipient lives in Canada, so now it’s an international knit! And apparently said baby arrived on the same day that the BSJ was delivered to his home. His mom sent a picture.
Kerri knit a hat with the leftover yarn I sent back. It fits big sister perfectly. What a fun gift project!
