Baby jackets

After knitting all those hats, see previous post. I started knitting baby jackets.
There were three of the sailor type ones, but I have given the pink and white one to a neighbour , she had her baby, a girl, called Lena, on Friday morning. The ballet style one is for a work colleague, she's also just had a baby girl. I am in the process of knitting a fourth sailor style jacket in lilac with white. Once they are done I will be knitting the same again, only in a larger size, but reversing the colours. So they will be predominantly white, with coloured highlights in the rib.
Oh! and two of the baby hats have gone to Lena, a "flower pot" one and a "daisy" one.
The sailor jackets are from a pattern that appeared this time last year in "The Knitter" magazine.
