A newborn BSJ
I wanted to knit a baby surprise jacket for quite a long time already but I thought that for a first one a baby size should be it. Since my children have outgrown that state I needed to wait for the proper moment. Now that friends of us welcomed their 2nd child the time was there... I knitted this one in Lorna's Laces sport, colourway jeans on 3.75mm needles and it came out as a nice newborn size. I really like to knit this little number and since my SIL is pregnant now for the first time I will make another one later this year but i will use Blue Moon Socks that Rock heavyweight yarn on 4 mm for that one so I hope it will be just a bit bigger (newborn babies grow so fast...)
I made bootees with the leftover yarn, that pattern comes from www.saartjeknits.nl, a nice and fast project too!
