Another EZ virgin confesses all!
I was quite pleased with the outcome - despite the yarn... and without even thinking I grabbed the needles and quickly cast on for another BSJ.
This time I got a bit brave and experimented with two colours. I have a standard baby cardigan which I have knit so many times and I always like to add a few different colours to it to make it a wee bit more interesting. The pattern is one I made up myself, without knowing that I was using some of EZ's theories for pattern creation...
I thought I'd add a bit of colour to the second BSJ and used two different colours of purple to add the wonderful angular lines created by the pattern.
I really wanted to add a bonnet of sorts and as I didn't have an EZ pattern to match I decided to knit a pattern which I learned as a child, and which reminds me a lot of EZ's knitting pattern. You knit a long wavy strip, which stitches up into a wonderful wee hat. I was experimenting with the gauge and ended up with two hats, neither of which particularly fit the size of the BSJ, but I'll find something to fit!
I can't wait to get started on the Modular Tomten. It's just my kind of thing.
Thanks for adding me to the list of EZ fans. I look forward to being able to ask questions here and share my new projects, now that the patterns have arrived...
Happy knitting (",)
