This was finished awhile ago, but I just got around to taking pictures of it.  I  used the recommended yarn --Blue Sky Alpacas Organic.  It used almost exactly one skein after all the seaming.  The seaming is a bitch!  I think next time I make it, I might knit the sleeves in the round.  This was originally for a friend's baby, but my hubbs and I liked it so much, we're keeping the first one for ours (no, we have no plans of having children soon), and I'll make more for other people.  I really like how this pattern turned out and highly recommend it!  The yarn is incredibly soft, but it can break sometimes if you hold the yarn too tight.
