Second Baby Surprise Jacket done!
They are addictive! This one was done using Lion Brand Baby Soft (another acrylic... gasp!!) in cream color on size 7 Knit Picks options needles at a gauge of 5 stitches per inch. Now that it's done, I wish I'd have gone down at least one needle size.
It measures 20.5" around the chest when buttoned and took well under one ball of the yarn (each ball is over 400 yds!!) so I'm working on booties to match.
This is a really boring color!! If it weren't for a family who isn't finding out the gender of the baby ahead of time, I would have never chosen this. In fact, I'm almost positive I won't chose a solid color ever again! I do so love this pattern, though. I see more in my future, even with no babies on the way. I think next up will be the Practically Seamless baby sweater from the Knitter's Almanac in Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4ply.
