August 8, 2007…..Baby Surprise Jacket

I finally finished something. 

The BSJ took a lot less yarn than I thought it would.  I used STR Lightweight in Rolling Stone that had 360 yards, and the photo below is what is left of the skein….about 100 yards.  I used a #3.  Although it is a small jacket, it is no where as small as I thought it would be.  Not certain what size child it will fit but the chest measurement is 16″ around.  Haven’t found buttons for it yet.

If you have not made a BSJ, I do suggest you put it on your “to do” list.  It is as amazing to make as everyone in blog land says it is.
