Here is my first baby surprise jacket. I've heard so much about it, being a knitting classic and favorite. Elizabeth Zimmerman was a true knitting genius. It was fun to knit it up, it's done in one piece, and then fold it accordingly to see it become a sweater. I've added fish buttons to it, here. They aren't overly practical but still a perfect match. I gave it to the expectant dad as a birthday present last night and he thought I'd lost my mind. Which I have. No doubt. Don't worry I have actually sewn it up, though the stripes added more loose ends than I cared for.
