So, when I travel I try to visit the LYS and usually try to pick up a shop pattern as a souvenir. Last October I was in Baltimore at A Good Yarn and bought a pattern that is called Tots On the Go: Annabelle, or maybe it’s brand is TOTG and it is called Annabelle. The designer isn’t listed, though I suspect it is the shop owner, who I met and who served me a lovely cup of tea and a cookie. (or maybe the designer is Annabelle!) The sweater was adorable, and I went ahead and bought the yarn for it, Cascade Luna, a nubby cotton.
The pattern had no picture of the FO.
Now it is March, half a year later, and I am in the midst of baby season and have decided to knit it. Of course, I can’t remember at all what it looked like, except that it was adorable. I have unwittingly created my own surprise pattern. Hence the moniker.
So far it looks like this. From reading the pattern, there is ribbing and ruffles and color blocking and even intarsia. Should be fun to feel my way through it. I’ll post progress reports so you can see what comes of it all, as it comes.
Safe travels home,
