Ribbed for His Pleasure

This post has been sitting around a while, because all the good words are taken. Seriously, all humorous and/or clever phrases have zipped right out of my head while I have NOT been sleeping. That's it. I can blame this cruddy post entirely on the lack of sleep. "Lack of sleep," the one topic the whole facebook community can agree on.

Anywho, when we got a few snow days off from work back in early January I completed this gorgeous jacket. And then I took really boring shot of it in the snow as proof.

I've made a more girly version before (rav) and loved the pattern, so when I found out I was having a boy I was a little depressed that I wouldn't get to use it until I saw capattbb's Prince Aaron Sweater on Rav (non-rav link), who totally jazzed it up masculine-style.

Pattern: Ribbed Baby Jacket by Debbie Bliss (a random non-rav link)
Yarns: Main color was Miss Babs Merino/Bamboo in colorway Light Gray and contrast yarn was Cascade Heathers in colorway Sapphire left over from the Hubby's Cambridge pullover. Since, I subbed the yarn with a silkier blend for this jacket, it's all about the drape and it is gorgeous. *in singsong voice*
Needles: US size 8
Size: 9 months (My yarn was underweight, so I knit up the 12 month size and came out with the correct 9 month size.)
