My first baby jacket

First baby jacket

G’s jacket

I knitted this jacket for grandniece G back in July/August. I was so happy to finally finish something that was a bit more complex than blanket squares or a garter stitch scarf.

This was a Debbie Bliss design using Debbie Bliss Angel wool (76% Mohair, 24% Silk). It’s very delicate wool but feels strong and is beautiful to knit with. I learnt to use stitch holders and pick up stitches to complete the neck.

A big step on the long journey to mastery!
