I finished 2 more baby surprise jackets. I cant tell you how much fun this pattern is. It's weird at first, but once you get it you start seeing a jacket out of every yarn you see. I think next time I will use a looser cast off in the end, but otherwise I am perfectly happy with them. The pinkish one is made using Koigu and a size 3 needle. I tried it on smaller needles, but its softer on 3's.
The green/blue one is made from Claudia Handpaints. I only used 1 skein of that and then used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for the trim. I used size 5 needles. I love that yarn!!!
Jared taught me a new technique for making beautiful button holes. Thank you Jared. Ask me and I will pass this knowledge on to you!
I didnt "block" these. I guess one thing I learned from each designer at Purl Jam is that everyone has their own ideas about blocking. My idea on THIS project is that it is perfect the way it is. I hope you all enjoy as much as I do.
