BSJ News Flash

If you haven't picked it up yet, make sure you get yourself a copy of Vogue Knitting's Spring/Summer edition. Meg shares a variation of the Baby Surprise Jacket that she found in one of Elizabeth's notebooks. It's shaped a lot like the heartbreakingly cute baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting, but with that crazy BSJ flair. I can't wait to try it, so the magazine and some cotton tweed are going on Spring Break with me. Hope to show you when I get back!


  • I just got the magazine last night. Do you know what is the jumper weight wool in the pattern? Is that DK weight?

  • No, it's the Vogue Knitting Spring Summer issue. http://www.vogueknitting.com/

  • Since the pattern suggests a size 3 to 5 needle, I would assume it's DK or sport weight. I'm going to use a bigger needle because I'm using worsted yarn, so my sweater will fit a slightly bigger baby.

  • The Baby Surplice is my favorite EZ baby sweater so far. I used Laines du nord baby star to make one and now I'm doing another out of Laines du nord Dolly. The finished pictures are on my blog: http://gardenofcolor.blogspot.com on Feb 8th. Happy knitting!

  • Ooooh ... thanks for the head's up. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise.

    I love the BSJ. And I now love the MD kimono. And there's a new baby-to-be to knit for and I'm torn betweem wthe two.

    So I'll just try the new pattern.
