I've decided that I need a new project to get the whole summer knitting thing started. When most people think of summer knitting, cotton, linen and hemp spring to mind.

I think wool. Light colored wool, but wool nonetheless.

I had two almost full skeins of Lambs Pride in "Oatmeal", a copy of the Oppionated Knitter and a friend who's getting fatter by the day. Enter the Baby Surprise Jacket:

For some reason, I thought I could cast on and knit a baby sweater in, like, twenty minutes. Not so much. But hey, it's garter stitch, and I just happen to think that garter stitch is super fun.

And look at the wrong side decreases!

I'm off to the ATL this weekend and I'm totally procuring more yarn I won't knit for about three years. Wish me luck

Love the BSj--EZ will do you right every damn time. I'm also doing what you're doing this weekend--going to another city (Mpls.) and likely procuring yarn I don't need. Safe travels:)
