I have been a committed knitter during my absence from blogging. This baby jacket is for my cousin’s baby. She is the most adorable little girl you can imagine. The jacket will keep her warm and pretty on cold winter days.
As a knitter that only begun knitting seriously (… that sounds silly, have you ever heard of an unserious knitter?) about two years ago I am quite proud of having made this jacket. I would never have thought I would get this far with my knitting. Every new project I take on teaches me something new.
This jacket taught me that I should never be afraid to try patterns that look difficult. If it is too difficult you can always stop knitting and use the yarn for something else. And if it is not overwhelming and you conquer the challenge then you end up with a sweet jacket and one bar more on the knitters self-esteem chart.
