Lots of little things!
This is my latest addiction - a tiny version of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket. This makes a gorgeous newborn sized jacket in about three hours , go to whoa!
It is the brainchild of Mariella on the knitbabysurprise group - and it is the best little stash buster I know! Takes under 50 grams of yarn, so marvellous for using up all the odd balls.
I found an amazing shop in Toowoomba called All Things Local, and they will take anything I can give them in the way of knitwear to sell for me!! So I am stockpiling lots of nice little things for next winter - these little jackets are going to go down big I think. The blue sweater is made in Wiggles yarn. Here's a better pic of it.
Isn't it the cutest yarn - has all these little wiggles of colour through it - a friend in Boston sent it to me - she sent two balls each of red, blue and yellow - so can't wait to knit some more!
I have done a bit of tweaking to the original Tiny Version - can't leave a pattern alone, me. Now all I have to do is get it written down before it disappears from my head for the next time. I made all of these little sweethearts in a week by the way - one a day!!
