BSJ I own you!!!!!
I know everyone that makes this sweater loves it. Me well....not so much. I think it was the color of the yarn. Vanna White's new yarn and size 7 needles almost 3 sks. This is a thicker worsted than lets say Red Heart Super Saver. The lighting in the store I purchased this yarn must have been off. When I looked at it at home it was just drab. In the store it seems to have a heather type look. I wish I had bought another color.
This will be the jacket I keep to look at when I make another one. Yes, I will make another one someday. In a solid color with stripes. I could not make up my mind what type of M1 to use so this jacket has every know increase possible. It is not perfect. I worked out my own theory on what EZ meant when she wrote the pattern. I hope my next jacket will make it to a baby. Just thinking of all the colors I can use makes me want to cast on....better not.
I am working on a star rug for Gus T's nursery. It is yellow (starfish like). His room is an ocean theme. I still have the pink ribbon bag on the needles and I am working the graph now. I have 15 more rows of the design left. I still have to knit the handles, gusset, and the back. Then on to felting. It has been more work than I thought it would be.
