Knitted Cotton Jacket

Hot off the needles this week is a cotton knitted jacket. I had the red cotton in my stash. It was destined for a shawl for me, but I find knitting children's clothes more motivating. The pattern is from Debbie Bliss' 'Baby Knits for Beginners.' This is a fantastic book full of really useful and lovely patterns. I enjoyed knitting this jacket and it has already been used. 
I picked up the buttons at my local wool shop. I love them. In order to use them I needed to remodel the button hole slightly to accommodate the larger button. Red is such a hard colour to match, but these buttons work really well.
I have already started another knit for my baby, which is not in keeping with my self imposed challenge to completed already started projects this year. Oh well whats life without a little variety, happy knitting.
