Debbie Bliss Baby jacket with lace edging

I just finished knitting this baby sweater as a gift. It's knit in Rowan Wool Cotton, and it's a Debbie Bliss pattern - Jacket with Lace Edging. The color is Hiss.

The knitting went fast. The finishing was a bear! Too much hand sewing for me. But I'm pleased with the way it turned out. At least I'm able to seam more neatly than I used to. I guess I need to focus on that.

What a cute litle jacket! I don't like the seaming either, which is strange because I love to sew, but not hand knits.

I love the edging on the sweater. I am curious how you like the Bliss cotton wool compared to Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece - any comparison??

Cathy,
I think the 2 yarns are similar. It's been a while since I used the cotton fleece, but I recall it being a little splittier than the Rowan. I think it's a tad heavier also. I have to admit the lace eding was fun and easy to knit. It was just a pain to sew on!
