baby surprise

I have a gazillion UFOs, but I've been mostly working on the Elizabeth Zimmermann "baby surprise sweater" for a friend's baby that wasn't due until June 10th. He was born May 11th. I don't think I will ever make anything on time for anyone! lol

um, Christopher, i don't think that the chenge in birth date is a reflection on your knitting speed...  hehehe..  Keep knitting, guy.  And the UFO's will eventually becomg finished projects.  It just takes time.

It's just that I really did think this sweater WOULD be finished before he was born and Mother Nature tricked me!

I started to make the baby afghan from "Mason Dixon" knitting for a baby due in September. If this one isn't finished in time then I'm going to just make dishcloths for gifts!

May 11th? That's my birthday! Don't feel bad about not finishing on time; I am knitting a teddy bear for a friend's baby that was born a month ago!
