Open ended knit-along for Elizabeth Zimmermann's Surprise Jacket- baby or adult.
I love seeing all the projects at this site. After reading a few posts about questions/problems, I remembered the info I used for my first BSJ. Just in case you haven't seen it yet, Dawn's Knitting Notebook has a really good "cheat sheet" here:http://www.3gcs.com/adcock/free%20patterns/BSS%20Notes.htm
I used kf&b this time - i used m1 the last time. I far prefer kf&b - for me it makes the jacket reversible.
I really like your use of two colors with the garter stitch. Your project looks great! Sorry to hear that you're not happy with the m1's...and I totally understand why you felt the need to go back to the beginning of the m1 section. I got about as far as you have, and began battling my BSJ...it was me against it. I ended up frogging the entire piece. I hope that you're able to get through your bit of frogging more successfully than me!
I'm glad to hear someone else say they are not happy with the M1s. I am also not liking it but am not diligent enough to rip out at this point. Something about the M1s is lumpy and not attractive. I like Marnie's suggestion. I plan on doing another one of these and I will try that next time.Still, it looks great and I love the stripes!
