A baby surprise

Hi all,

I've been lurking on this KAL for a while now, admiring everyone's beautiful knits. But as I've entered the third trimester along with the KAL (I'm due in early November), some of my baby knitting projects have finally been completed.

Baby Surprise Jacket and Booties FO

This is a baby surprise jacket and a pair of booties (from Knit Simple spring 2007) in Artyarns supermerino. I estimate the jacket is about a 3-6 months size, the booties can probably be used right away. In fact, I think the booties are so cute they really deserve a close-up:

I've also knit a baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting for a cousin's son:

I'm working on a log cabin blanket, and I have plans for some utilitarian longies and onesies using various leftovers. I'd love to knit the Pea Pod or some other more advanced cardigan as well.

I look forward to seeing all of your inspiring knits!
