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.

I just saw an ad for Vanna's yarn, but I haven't held it in my hands yet (that's how I pick yarn... :oD ...the "feel" test).

I think the jacket is great! And the starfish rug is very clever.

Your BSJ looks great! Try another one and throw in some colorful stripes. That always make me knit faster and keeps my interest, because I want to see how the stripes work out. Also a good way to use up those little bits of yarn.
