Here are the two latest FOs. The first is the Baby Albert (as in Einstein) jacket by Sally Melville, from her book The Knit Stitch. I made it in Patons Classic Merino, colourway Blueberry. I really like this pattern because there are only two little seams at the end of it to sew up (along the shoulder) I'm still working on how to end up with less ends to sew in, I'm sure a couple of the places I picked up I could have carried the working wool:



The mess half folded



The bit that makes you feel like a genius



The finished jacket sans buttons, but I stil call it finished. I can't believe how crookedly the floor is wearing this, I swear the jacket is actually very symmetrical, I should pay more attention to how I throw things on the floor if I'm going to take pictures of them.


The second jacket is from the Peapod set, a free pattern on knittingdaily.com. It originally called for Debbie Bliss Cotton, but I decided to use some super soft Luxury Collection Fine Merino Superwash DK instead:


Another jacket awaiting the perfect buttons. I'm thinking little daisies for this one, but who knows how it will end up.

The colour is totally whacky on this picture, the sweater is actually more green-yellow than green-blue, this is a little closer:


Who does she think she is?

I love that second one, the work is gorgeous. You are so tempting me to pick up needles and probably stab out my eyeballs!

Thanks very much. I find it much more productive to use the needles as weapons against others. If nothing else, brandishing them will get you a few minutes of knitting in peace.

Wow they are all beautiful!

And I just love the color and the middle-pattern of the third one. You know, I will show it to my mother next time I visit; I would love a similar model/color! :)

She has been knitting since she is about 12 years old, but in the recent years, she had slaked off a little, but he told me just last week that she was about to start knitting again this Fall.

I love it when you post your knitting pictures; I really like to see the different patterns you knit.

Thanks very much Jude. The pattern (for baby) is free on knittingdaily.com, and I'm sure your mother, with so much experience would have no trouble adjusting it for an adult size.

Good luck!
