It's a Baby Surprise Jacket (a.k.a. BSJ)! (ravelry link)
I am making a couple of mods (similar to my other BSJ). I'll graft the shoulder seams, pick up and knit a collar, and add length to the sleeves. Starting with a full provisional cast on gives me live stitches for all that including the grafting (on the back, the front is picking up garter ridge bumps). More details as they happen on my ravelry page for this BSJ.
The yarn is a light worsted singles yarn (~12-13 wpi for those who must know) I spun from some roving I got at Sock Summit.
Here is is with one skein spun. Superwash Colonial wool from my friend LoraJean of Knitted Wit. She is such a sweetie and her colors are so cheerful! It was wonderful to see her again.
The fiber spun up like a dream. I started Tuesday morning and had it all spun by mid-afternoon. I washed my first skein and started knitting right away. Why the hurry? There is a baby coming! It is due in early winter so I need to get cracking. No! It is not my baby and there really isn't a rush. Just a mild obession and a crazed spinner/knitter.
Didn't know I was going to Sock Summit? Ah, yes. That would be because I neglected to tell you. Bad Maia! More on that to come. Remember my resolution to blog shorter and more frequently? I am managing the shorter part. Now for the frequent part . . .
Gotta run. There is laundry to wash and fold, a house to clean, and my brain has gone AWOL. Must find my brain.
