We had a lovely day playing at Nettie's. Do you think she'll be a knitter?

BSJ finished, and not a moment too soon
Well, I was feeling pretty darned pleased with myself. Not only had I finished a project, but it was the much-frogged Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket, and it was for ma minette. Looking at it growing on the needles, I thought 'surely this will fit a 2 year old, not my little minette'. Then I cast off, flipped it magically into shape, sewed on some very cute buttons, and there it was...my first BSJ. And it looked to be just the right size. My, my, I was pleased. (Well, except for those pick up ridges, but I have read a few ravelry hints on how to deal with those next time.) It was knit in yarn that was grown, spun and dyed in Cowra. Not only cute, but local too.But then, I hadn't quite remembered that babies grow. Too quickly. Yes, it's a little snug on ma minette. Not too tight, but just a little snug.But I don't think she minds too much. It will keep her warm and looking quite pretty too, n'est-ce pas?
