FO: Garter Stitch Baby Jacket
Here's another sweater for Katie's new baby girl, due in January.

This baby jacket is one-piece, with seaming along the sides & arms.
I've knit it numerous times for different babies born in our family and in our congregation.

It used one skein, but I bought two. So I'm knitting a "Little Friends" dress with the other skein.
I think all 4 sweaters can be worn with the dress using this Baby Baby colorway.







My Ravelry notes.

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

I'm beginning to think this new baby is really your new doll to dress up.

Adorable sweater.

Husband has been gone for two weeks, hunting. He's on his way home today. So while the cat's away, the mice will play. Meaning...I've been able to knit like a fiend with no one over my shoulder.

The other day, I knit til 7 am...all nighter. Ugh. That was a mistake. In the morning I had to frog and re-knit half the Right Side. Of this jacket. How in the world does one make a mistake on a garter stitch baby jacket that's been knit a dozen times? By forgetting the doggone buttonholes! Ha Ha. Ya just can't play off an error like that.

Each sweater is so lovely but the four together are overwhelming. And a dress yet to come! (btw, the model Little Friends are adorable, too.)
It's a stunningly beautiful wardrobe and so thoughtful to have the different sizes.
