Surprise!

Here's a nearly-finished picture of the Baby Surprise Jacket I'm knitting in Koigu KPPPM (easter grass and jelly bean colors) and KPM (bright lavendar)

In this photo, I've worked an I-cord bind-off around the bottom edge and front bands (on the Baby Surprise Jacket, this is where the last row ends up). Since this photo was taken, I've added I-cord to the cuffies and I've been figuring out just how to get an attached I-cord around the neck.

The challenges were a) running out of multicolored yarn and b) attractively attaching the end of the I-cord to the beginning of the bind off . That part hasn't gone quite as smooothly. I can't get those last 6 stitches to be friends & look nice together. But it remains only to beat that join into submission, attach buttons and wash this one. Very nearly an FO... but not quite.

Ooh lucky baby! Koigu! I love the way the variegation forms a pattern from the seaming! And the edgeing in Koigu is a great touch!

Thanks for the advice on the BSJ. I'm going to start one with the yahoogroup next week. Seeing your beautiful work is so motivating!

Does that mean I missed my chance to see it before you did the origami on it? :)
