Crunch time!

It seems baby season is upon us! I have a couple of friends who will be having babies by the end of summer, so I figured I'd better get knitting already. Nothing worse than a baby gift that's too small for the recipent to wear!

The weather has been perpetually gray and therefore unfriendly to picture taking...sorry it looks so dark.

I'm making this baby jacket/hat kit from a Shaefer Yarn Pattern which calls for 1 skein of their "Anne" yarn. It's 25% mohair, 15% nylon and 60% Superwash Merino. It looks delicate but it's machine washable! Score! Also, there are a whopping 560 yards of this stuff to work with. I would never again have to fear running out of yarn making a pair of socks. I love this soft and durable yarn!
