Spring Knit Along

For the third time in KK history we are knitting the 1974 version of EZ’s amazing Baby Surprise Jacket. We make them to fit any size using any yarn all from this original pattern. Find loads of BSJ pictures inside our Knit Alongs Album. The picture above was taken in 2012.


An long lost UFO turned up. This is the result of my attempt to crochet the jacket. I like it in sock yarn for a doll. Crocheting isn’t my thing but if you are interested in my recipe, just ask. I’ll be happy to share. Using percentages it can be worked in any size.




















Lap Blanket Charity

This month we added Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice to our long list of supported charities. They are requesting lap blankets for wheel chairs and bed throws of about 36” - 40” in washable yarns.


Project Amigo


*We will continue to collect blanket squares*

We sent a grand total of 223 squares to Project Amigo.  Here are some pictures of Dr. Sam Brown holding blankets he assembled and sewed. Project Amigo.  He credits his wife for color combining the myriad squares — many of which you may recognize.
