BSJ for Baby Barker

BSJ for Baby Barker, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

I'm knitting a little baby surprise jacket for Baby Barker, made from my own handspun. The fibre was Hello Yarn's superwash merino in "Peat", which I spun into a 3ply DK weight. This was my first go at a three ply and I love how it turned out. The superwash aspect not only makes it really soft for next to baby's skin, but also means that it'll be able to go in the wash! I'm knitting it on reasonably small needles as I wanted the fabric to be quite thick, but it's still quite soft and flexible.

One "karmic balancing payment" made to Knitters Without Borders. Thanks again for the two tickets - I had a really lovely day.
