"Twas the day after Christmas . . .

When we finally got out of the house!

Actually, it was Saturday, and we went to visit ToolMan's sister in Vancouver. To be honest, I think the whole family was WAY past the novelty of a white Christmas; we're all ready for the snow to be gone and get back to a normal routine.

We had all decided not to exchange gifts this year; we all have way to much stuff; but I did have some knitted things that had been languishing until I could hand them out. Sorry for the bad pictures, I forgot to change the settings on the camera.

Here's niece Jane, with a lace cowl in navy heather hand spun.

And brother-in-law Jim laughing over his #@!*% Golf Club Covers.

And sister-in-law Faye wearing "The Blob", which is actually an adult-sized version Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket.

That's 4 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun in the Prairie colorway, knitted on size 15 circulars; use the same stitch count as EZ'a original pattern, just ignore gauge. I did a single crochet edge on the cuffs, up the fronts and around the neck, just for a little stability. I also added wooden toggles on the front that will just slip between the stitches. This came out so well, I may make one for myself.

  1. I have been considering the EZ jacket for grownups. It looks really good!
