Technicoloured dream coat

I'm not sure why I bought 3 big balls of this yarn.
Firstly - do I even like this yarn at all? and secondly what should I make with it ?  It's the colours you see that had me very undecided.
None of my patterns seemed right  and I just kept pushing it to the bottom of the box. Till one day having  borrowed  this book from the library and reading the pattern for a baby surprise jacket I decided to just go for it. I think that it actually suits the pattern.

It is not called a surprise jacket for no reason. It had me a bit disorientated at times whilst knitting. This is what it looks like when finished.
What I liked most about this pattern is the small amount of seaming needed. Next time I will make buttonholes only on one side.

Yarn used - Patons Big Baby 4ply, 100g
Pattern - Baby surprise jacket. The Opinionated Knitted by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Now what do I do with the other 2 balls of yarn? Any pattern suggestions?

Life has been busy

so computer time is the first thing to be forfeited by me, hence my no show over the last few weeks. I have found time to do some crafts but don't have pictures of most of them to share as yet so I will leave you with these.

Embroidered bassinet sheets.

The giraffe.

The zebra.

After taking the photos I did go back and fix the black threads on the back.
I saved the patterns from a search I did on flickr for 'free embroidery patterns'. There are hundreds to choose from.
