surprise jacket & a second sock

Cast on for my first EZ Baby Surprise jacket from The Opinionated Knitter. I’m using Kona Bay Wool from my stash. I was planning on knitting the entire jacket in blue, but after doing a provisional cast on in green for the sleeves, I may add some stripes (or maybe just do the I-Cord trim around the edges in green). It took me a minute to figure out where to add them, but I think this is right.

The stripes will look surprisingly different once the flat knitting is finished and it’s folded up origami style!
I’m on the second Badcaul sock and if I knit this one at the same rate as the first, I should have a pair by Sunday.

  1. The green goes really well to the blue and it’ll add more of a ‘surprise’ element to it.

  2. Sweater oragami… awesome!

  3. i love seeing the surprise in the surprise jacket. EZ was such a genius!

  4. I love that blue! Great color choice–I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
