I hate sewing

Two of my staff are having baby girls this summer (one could be giving birth at this very minute). I got a late start on knitting them some gifts, but managed to crank out two Baby Surprise Jackets pretty quickly -- at least the knitting part.

See, this is why I like socks: you bind off the cuff or graft the toe, and *poof*, you're done. These jackets require minimal sewing, but still required 10 inches of seam and 5 buttons each.

Nevertheless, they're done, and they are cute, aren't they?

I make my BSJs with 3 or 4 button holes instead of 5. I'm funny that way. Saves on sewing, though!

That's 20" of sewing ... far too much. And 10 buttons?!?! But yes they are cute.
