BSJ Progress

I am at the point in the BSJ (Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman, Ravelry link and non-Ravelry link) where it stops looking like a half knitted cardigan and starts looking like a yarn blob.

If the designer was anybody but the renowned and respected EZ, I might have my doubts. As it is, I am knitting merrily along.

The closer I get to finishing the jacket, the more sure I am that I will have yarn left over. So, I’ve been brainstorming about what small accessory I could knit out of the extra yarn. I’m leaning towards a garter stitch bonnet. I thought of a scarf, but then thought it might be obnoxious for both the baby (confining) and the mother (easy to lose). Or I could add a hood to the jacket. Any thoughts?
