Also during this time a quilt was finished
with a special little dedication added for one of my little fellow's
And whilst a bit of this was going on
and I had view like this
I finally FINALLY finished the all-consuming BSJ (Baby Surprise Jacket) first cast on way back here and twice frogged.
This teeny tiny little number gives no hint of it's trickiness. I'm not sure if it works for you or against you being a beginner knitter attempting this jacket. On the one hand it's great not having any pre-conceived "rules" for how something like this should be knit up because it literally looks like something someone ran over until it's off the sticks. On the other hand there were so many knitting conventions and terms which it seemed were assumed knowledge that I found myself quite lost on many occasions.
Enter the lovely Suzy and her VERY patient advice in person, via text, email AND twitter and in the end I muddled my way through. So many versions of this jacket have been Raved (mine here) but the one that first got my attention was Suzy's version for her then new baby girl. I'm certainly hoping my new little fellow can wear this on his way home from hospital in the same way.
