More squee

I read somewhere that knitting the BSJ in fingering would produce a newborn-size sweater, so I decided to test that theory out.

Is that too small?  I have no idea, but I enjoyed knitting it and love the results, even though it still needs buttons.  (I place buttonholes on both sides because 1) I can never remember which side is for boys and which is for girls, and 2) by sewing the buttons over one set of buttonholes, I can be sure buttons and buttonholes will line up.)

Pattern:  Baby Surprise Jacket, by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Yarn:  Oasis Yarn Aussie Sock in 'Faded Valentine' - 58g/2.0 oz.
Needles:  US2
Modifications:  None.

Pattern:  Infant Socks, by Judy Ellis
Yarn:  Oasis Yarn Aussie Sock in 'Faded Valentine' - 17g/0.65 oz.
Needles:  US1
Modifications:  None.

Next, I will knit a BSJ in sport weight, on US4 needles, to further the experiment along.

Sweet! I have yet to try the BSJ, as I fear the addictive quality may undo me. Your adorable example? Not helping there. Sigh.
