Baby Surprise Jacket Wiki

No finished BSJ today, as I had to do a little ripping last night. Sometimes garter is a little bit too mindless for me and I zoom right on past the increases or decreases, especially when I’m peeing my pants over Jim pretending to be Dwight on The Office. Whoops!

I discovered this amazing KnitWiki for the Baby Surprise Jacket just now. It has such excellent diagrams and photos of the process. I’d have understood the construction from the beginning had I seen this. How did I not know this existed?

And so as not to leave you photo-less:

Some stashed skeins of Fat Sock. More BSJ’s?

    whee! I just picked up some fat sock for a BSJ — just trying to find a solid to go with it. THANK YOU for the wiki link. Very cool.

    Had you listen to the Great Brenda Dayne (from cast-on podcast), you’ld know it. (But I must go check what’s new there now. Bye!)
    Isn’t it fantastic?

    Thanks for knit-wiki link, it’s so amazingly cool! And your BSJ is one of the best looking one I’ve came across… can’t wait to see it finished.

    I see more BSJ’s in your future. All made of Fat Sock and extensively photographed, please. They’d be amazing!

    Sorry to clutter up the comments, but the KnitWiki thing is great! I have been wondering how to make this jacket stripe the way I want it to, and now I know.

    I just found the site after I finished my BSJ! I need to explore and see if anyone has posted how to enlarge the sweater for a toddler.

    Oh, yummy yarn. And I didn’t know about that site either, so thanks for the link.

    Thanks for the link. I caved in and cast on my own first BSJ this afternoon, thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks for the link to the KnitWiki! Didn’t know about it either.

    Also for all comments about how to pick up more cleanly, etc.

    BSJ is one of my favorites – my favorite one was 2 variegateds together.
