Baby Surprise

Quick Intro
Hello, I'm Sara. I taught myself to knit over 20 years ago, but only got serious with it about 4 years ago. At that time, I pretty much snapped up any book that vaguely resembled a how-to book. Most of them turned out to be EZ's. (KWT, Knitters Almanac, Knitting Around and Knitting Workshop.) Now, I'm finally diving into them in earnest. I started my first ever EZ project yesterday: The Baby Surprise Jacket (as found in Knitting Workshop.) You may read about my adventures here.

I had jury duty today and had my knitting taken up (yes, I was dumb enough to try...and yes, it was returned at the end of the day). Without my needles I discovered that it is just as fun to read EZ for pleasure as it is for obtaining info. (I was allowed to keep the book)

  • EZ's books are, to me, like sitting having a chat with her. I love them, just for the reading! And then there are the hints and ideas and patterns! What are you making your BSJ with? I still haven't done one, but I have a pile of Galway wool in various colours that's itching to be knit into one. :O) Happy EZing! samm

  • I'm using Encore Colorspun. The colorway is called candy somthingorother, but it actually is working itself into rainbow stripes. Way cool. I've got pics on my blog.
