I know so many people expecting babies (or who have just had them) between December and April, that I've had to start a list to keep track of them all. Fifteen babies. Fifteen. Not all of them are close enough to receive knits, but many are. So I've been making a lot of Baby Surprise Jackets. These are all being knit from my stash of the much-lamented Reynolds' Wash-Day Wool (except for two of the shades of blue in the first picture below).
First there were these two, for Alisha's identical twin boys (born early January):
Shades of blue - one sweater dark-to-light, the other light-to-dark. With adorable navy blue car buttons from my LYS.
Then there was a Neapolitan ice-cream-striped sweater for one of the few girl babies in the bunch (born late December):
And early in the new year I started the next batch of sweaters. I'll have two new nephews, both probably arriving in February, so their sweaters were at the top of my list for the new year. Here is the first sweater, with my lovely new yarn bowl hard at work:
I finished the brown-green-blue sweater January 18. Here are some before and after folding pictures:
I started the next BSJ right away, but have run into a problem.
