Cable and Seed Stitch Jacket

Another FO...



Started: July 25, 2006
Finished: Sept 4, 2006
Yarn: On Line Linie Tessa
Pattern: Debbie Bliss Baby Knits. The Cable and Seed Stitch Jacket.
Adjustments: Many. But is was really simple. The jacket it basically a back, 2 fronts and sleeves, no waist or armhole shaping. So I made it to fit about 3-6 months...I think! I also had a little tighter gauge...so there was some math involved.

I picked up these cute little flower buttons...



I love knitting for girls!

I threw it in the washer yesterday and laid it flat to dry on top of the dryer...no change...



(the colour change is my camera, I took this pic downstairs with the flash)

This was suppose to be a christmas knit for my new niece that is arriving anytime now....but I think it will be a look-you're-just-born-gift because I have my eye on another sweater for christmas!

Oh, A little eye candy friday...


Today is my eldests 4th birthday! The caped crusador cake is underway...just waiting for it to cool so I can ice it!

I want that cake. (And the sweater is completely adorable.) But mostly, I want that cake. Just because I'm over ten times that age is no reason not to have it. :)

Marianne said...

Oh, the flower buttons are totally precious!

That jacket is too precious!

amanda said...

that jacket is totally cute, but WHERE did you find that cake mold? My husband and his brothers are Batman obsessed and would love to have it!

Stephanie said...

Cake!!! Yum. And the sweater is pretty darn fabulous too.

kmkat said...

I thought the cake picture was of a Batman carved from stone until I read the text. Probably better that it is a cake, otherwise your little one would break a tooth.

Adorable sweater!

That little jacket is beyond adorable!

The sweater is beyond adorable.

You are quite ambitious to frost the caped crusader. I thought I was doing well last year with a football.

nova said...

The sweater is beautiful; but, the buttons makes it even more snazzy! Wonderful work!

caro said...

The flower buttons are adorable on the sweater. I love the green too. Well done!

gail said...

It's such a cute sweater! I totally want to knit one for my upcoming niece. The bonus: I already have that pattern book! Woot!

pat said...

That is the cutest baby sweater I have seen in a long time! I just "ordered" that Debbie Bliss book from our interlibrary loan system. I can't wait to start! Thanks for the inspiration.

Liz said...

This little cardi is so cute... great job! I absolutely love the color and the buttons, too. I'll have to get this book.

Also... what a cake. How fun. :) Happy Birthday to your little man.

brooke said...

Great jacket! I love the little buttons :o)

Amy O'Neill Houck said...

Buttons, pockets, everything looks great! And of course--awesome cake...

Kirsten said...

That sweater is so adorable I can't think straight! Oh, and I have no little ones to knit for. Boo-hoo.

Heather said...

That turned out so cute! I love the color. And of course, can't wait to see the cake all done up!

Lori said...

Adorable sweater, fabulous knitting. But I have Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits (and her Baby Knits for Beginners) and I don't see anything like that pattern. Does it go by another name in the book? Oh, and I too thought the cake was an ancient stone carving. How funny!

LotusKnits said...

That jacket is adorable! Great job!

Beth said...

I absolutely LOVE that little sweater. I have a 2 year old who I keep knitting for but she never wants the final product. Maybe this one would change her mind :)

mf said...

eve knits said...

The sweater is beautiful!

Kaitie Tee said...

That's a very ambitious cake. I love the jacket. My niece was just born last week...does she need me to knit her yet another sweater?! Knitting for girls is addicting!

Kara said...

That is just too cute. The buttons are just the perfect icing!

Speaking of icing, I hope the Birthday plans went ok!

That little sweater is just so stinkin' cute I can't stand it. You did a great job on it.

sue said...

The green sweater is just so cute, and I love the color. Knitting for littlies is just so quick and so much fun.

Christy j said...

The little jacket looks great. I have one started in my UFO basket that I really must get back to. It's such a great unisex pattern.

mle said...

That sweater is soooo sweet! My first neice will be arriving in about a month so I've been drooling over all the cute baby patterns there are too! So quick and fun!

Kari said...

I love the cardigan! The color, the design, the buttons...all awesome! :-)

Dove Knits said...

What a pretty jacket. And dude, Batman is awesome.

miss ewe said...

Whoa, check out the abs on that cake! (ha!)
