1st baby surprise jacket

{what i did during my blog summer vacation}
i knitted my first baby surprise jacket (i say first because i already have plans to knit a second)
a pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann (who would have turned 100 on August 9, 2010)
funny thing is that the sailboat card came before the buttons, i was thrilled at the store to find these sailboat buttons that perfectly matched the blue color yarn & the sailboat card
more info about this jacket found at this ravelry link
as of today there are 12497 baby surprise jacket projects at ravelry
it's a baby sweater every knitter should knit
