Because she asked…

…I’ll show you my knitting spot. Like most of you, it’s on the couch, in front of my TV. Imagine me sitting in the corner next to the light, cat sometimes behind me on the green blanket, feet propped up on my coffee table. My special Ikea coffee table with the sliding tops. Underneath is one big WIP stash. In this shot, you can see Mermaid peeking out:

Here’s a shot from the other angle, so you can see my ancient TV sitting next to my not-so-ancient Tivo/DVD burner. The coffee table is closed in this shot.

And those WIPs that I showed you a few posts back? Well, here’s the Baby Surprise jacket I was working on. I finally sewed up the seams and made a matching hat. I added some cute star buttons and delivered it. Unfortuantely, mom was out taking a much needed break, so I left it on the porch with a note and mom was surprised and pleased (so I guess it’s a Baby Double-Surprise jacket).

Here’s the fate of another one of my UFOs. I decided it was a TOAD (Trashed Object, Abandoned in Disgust). To be fair, I wasn’t disgusted, just bored. Now that Cotton Classic can become something else someday.

Anyway, before:

    Wow, I’m finally able to visit your blog again after a long baby-related hiatus. As the recipient of the Baby Surprise jacket and hat, I can say that the colors are way prettier in person, and the outfit looks so cute on the baby (especially the hat) that it feels like your head is going to explode from all the cuteness. We took him out and about with the hat on and he got even more admiring looks than usual. Thanks again! You should come see him wearing it sometime.

    I love the Baby Surprise Jacket! The colors are fantastic. How did you sew up the seams? I have one that has been orphaned beacause I can’t decide how to sew it up. I tried crochet and that was awful.

    **Just finished The Clapotis Cap-LOVE IT!!!!! I made it as a store sample for the yarn shop I work for, but will soon be making one for myself.
