how long did the jacket take to knit, start to finish?

I think it took me 3 or 4 days of working on it bits at a time.  Definitely a quick knit.

I love the colors... what yarn did you use?
The yarn is Tonalita by Trendsetter Yarns, and I think the color is #2345. 

are you going to make another for the 2nd baby?

I used up all of the Tonalita on this sweater, so I've got to find some yarn and then decide what to do for the second baby.  I really like the February Baby Sweater by EZ, but I'm afraid it might be too girly if she has two boys.  My mom's decided not to find out the sex of the babies before they're born.  I also have Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss that has some adorable stuff in it.  She's only got 2 1/2 months to go, so I might wait and find out if they're boys or girls.

I'm in love with the jacket... I want one in my size
You know, I think there is actually an adult version out there somewhere. I'm pretty sure I saw it when I was searching for the baby pattern.

the girl in the last picture looks like luna lovegood from harry potter.
Heehee! That was my immediate thought as well.  I guess I just have Harry Potter on the brain. 

The mittens are lovely!

It seems all my friends are having babies right now.  Imagine my surprise when my Mom told me she's pregnant...with twins. Enter the baby surprise jacket, by Elizabeth Zimmerman:

I made a hat with the leftovers, and made the cat model it:

She didn't seem to mind.  

You can find more pictures on my flickr page:
And more details about the sweater on my blog.

I've been eyeing that noro scarf myself on brooklyntweed's blog.  Yours looks great! Everything he makes turns out gorgeous though, sometimes I look at the projects he posts and then at what I'm doing, and just think, "wtf am I doing???"

Thanks guys! I thought about just doing a needle roll, but I realized I just don't ever carry ALL my needles around with me, you know? It's much easier to just have them on the shelf.

What kind of book/hardcover is it made from? How did you make it? (if you don't mind sharing!)

It's actually pretty easy, I got the idea from a kit that I got for Christmas to make and bind your own journal.  You just need something hard for the cover (another hard cover book, cardboard, etc.), paper for the cover, and something to cover the binding that's flexible.  Fabric works pretty well.

I stabbed myself one too many time with the dpns swimming at the bottom of my knitting bag, so I decided to do something about it. I designed it to look like a book so that I can just stick it on the book shelf with all the knitting books.  This is absolutely one of my favorite things I've made (including most of the knitting!)

How do you get those pleats?

I just sewed some 1/4" elastic onto the wrong side, stretched out, so that when at it's normal non-stretched state it created pleats on the right side.  Easy peasy!
