FO - Baby Surprise Jacket
Finally finished this for a friends soon to be born baby boy. I'm mostly happy with it. I used Berroco Comfort (worsted) in navy and white. The yarn is very soft, but is pretty splitty.

That's so nice, Jan. Puts me in mind of a sailor's outfit. I love how the baby surprise jacket adapts itself to the individual variations of knitters.

Very sharp, Jan! Just the right blue...and the white really 'pops' the entire design! Great work! I like the pattern design very much, too!
