Feeling a little green......

Ms Mary's Surprise Baby Jacket was completed a couple of days ago. Isn't it just beautiful. I am going to sing the praises of Socks That Rock again. It's wonderful to work with and the colours are amazing.
Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Yarn: Socks That Rock Heavyweight in Falcon's Eye - I used the whole skein, less only a few yards, phew!
Needles: Why do I never make a note of these things?! It was either 4mm or 4.5mm. The larger, I think.
I waited to photograph this FO until I got round to completing another. I saw this cute iron-on transfer in Joann's and thought it would be a cute gift with the jacket.
And how could I resist putting them together on this adorable froggy hanger. Like the green theme? Like I said, Ms Mary's having a surprise baby - we won't know the sex 'til it's born :-)

Now, if I'm not mistaken, this is my 100th blog post. So a little competition would be appropriate, no? Add a question for me to your comment on this post and I'll draw a winner on Wednesday.

Bon chance :-)

How cute is that Baby Surprise Jacket! One of my friend's isn't going to find out the sex, so I'm thinking I should cast one on soon :) So cute! So glad you didn't run out of yarn!

A question...hmm! How many WIPs/UFOs do you have total? I can only think of your Jaywalkers...are there more? Are there some that hide out in a closet somewhere from months ago? And of those, what are you most likely to finish next? :)

Falcon's Eye, correct? I am about to start my first baby surprise jacket tonight after being so impressed by others' efforts.

My question - where did you get that onesie? Both my sisters had babies in the last few months and I want one of those!
