I have one last finished knit from 2010 to show you. I wasn’t really holding out on you, it’s just that it hadn’t been delivered to the recipient yet. Or should I say, the recipient hadn’t yet been delivered?
Indulge me for a moment and all will become clear.
The cuteness and charm of a Baby Surprise Jacket is well documented.
The garter stitch makes it squooshy and the simplicity of the design really showcases a beautifully dyed yarn, like this one from Spunky Eclectic.
The buttons, in this case antique ones from my grandmother’s button box, are it’s only adornment, which only furthers to promote the cuteness.
That said, no matter how cute a Baby Surprise Jacket is, a baby is cuter.
Presenting, Miss Madison, the darling and gorgeous granddaughter of my dear friend, JessaLu. And the recipient of this particular Baby Surprise Jacket.

People — she wore this sweater home from the hospital.
