Numbers 5 and 6

Yep, two more baby surprise jackets. These are actually numbers 5 and 6 in the last year (4 is on the blocking board and will be assembled and sent on its way this week -- I promise myself and the mother).

Pattern: Again, Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket, available from Schoolhouse Press
Yarn: Hmmm, the white is Lamb's Pride Superwash, the pink and purple are more of those random balls of Filatura di Crosa 501 from the stash.
Needles: Susanne Ebony 36" 4.00mm (#6)
Mods: None

The recipients of these sweaters are actually a pair of twin girls. The stripe patterns on the two sweaters are identical, I just switched the colors around (mostly based on how much of each yarn I had). Two balls of the white, two of the pink, and one of the purple did both sweaters. The package will also contain two of these:

Pattern: Baby Bib O'Love from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Some lavender cotton with flecks of color on a cone from the stash. Any DK/Light worsted cotton will do.
Needles: Susanne Ebony 36" 4.00mm (#6) -- the first time I've ever used this needle for anything other than a baby surprise
Mods: None, it's a very simple pattern, and we will probably be making a few more in the coming months.
