FO - Baby Surprise Jacket
This was the most fascinating piece of knitting engineering that I have ever seen. Elizabeth Zimmerman was an absolute genius.

I made this with stash yarn....unfortunately not mine, but I stole it from my mom's stash! If anyone's interested, I used Bernat Satin (worsted weight).

Hopefully this will fit the baby in the fall!

I love it! I've made two of them.. (they still need buttons)

I've been wanting to try the Bernat Satin. It looks soft!

Thank you everone for the nice comments.

Jan the Bernat Satin is nice to work with and is really soft. Occasionally though, I ran into sections that had about 5 inches of nubs on them (not sure how to describe it more). It's almost as if they had wound the yarn instead of tying knots. I used the better part of 2 balls and had maybe 3 or 4 longish sections like that.

Leslie, about what size did the BSJ turn out? I've been wanting to make one in worsted wool, Galway, and don't know how large it will be. Thanks! samm
