BSJ sideways

I forgot to show show you guys this!!!! The Baby Surprise Jacket: Another Elizabeth Zimmermann Masterpiece!!! All the knitting specs are on my blog.
The tiny baby brooch is made from quilting yo-yo (from a how-to I found in an old photocopied zine) and the center is a fabric covered button. I just learned how to make them and I'm kind of obsessed.

I really really want to make the Adult Surprise Jacket, but I've got to figure out how to skinny up those arm first.

One for an adult would be great! Good idea.

I really really want to make an Adult Surprise Jacket too.
I haven't found a free pattern for it yet though. Have you had any luck in that direction?

Happy Knitting,
