Recently, we had a baby shower in my office for one of my co-workers who is going to have a baby with his wife. I work with him a lot. He's really easy to work with, and does a lot of stuff for me on a daily basis, so I wanted to make something special for the baby. I thought this was a good opportunity to try out the famous Baby Surprise Jacket. I had ordered the pattern from Webs, and they included a step-by-step (row-by-row) version of the pattern, so I wouldn't have to decipher Elizabeth Zimmerman's cryptic instructions. I really like the the self-patterning yarn knit up. I think the colors are so nice for a baby boy. I didn't have enough matching buttons for the front, but I think it looks really charming and playful with the mis-matched buttons. I don't know if the baby will ever wear this since he'll be born in the middle of summer, but it was fun to make.
