I suppose in retrospect, I should have made a February sweater for a baby that will be born next Tuesday, but the readers voted for a Baby Surprise Jacket and who am I to argue?
Here you have it. Knit up in 4 days, give or take, in Socks that Rock Heavyweight. I think the yarn turned out to be a good choice. It is washable, soft and warm. It has a nice twist that makes the garter stitch look clean and simple.
The colour is Puck's Mischief. Everyone at my knitting get together last night agreed that it was a good baby colour, not too girly, just bright enough.
Now I'm off to see if Canada Post can get a package to Vancouver in a hurry. Wish me luck.
