Non-Stripey Surprise

I finished the Baby Surprise Jacket out of the leftovers from my two pairs of socks. Even though I was striping two different colorways of Koigu it turned out not to really have stripes. I didn't think the colorways were that similar, but the overall effect seems to be of a BSJ done in one extra-complex colorway.

I like BSJs where the striping is subtle, not obvious, but this was way more subtle than I was expecting. For reference the BSJ that Laura made for the fetus has a pretty optimal amount of subtlety in the striping.
