Another BSJ; no end to uses for EPS



Here is another BSJ-- Mission Falls worsted in Oatmeal; Crystal Palace Merino Frappe in Cherry Pie; purple Lamb's Pride worsted button bands; Mission Falls heart buttons; knitted on #7 Addis. The second sweater (assuming the photos post) is based on the Cornwall sweater from Alice Starmore's Fisherman's Knits, but modified into a seamless raglan a la EZ. It's in Peace Fleece Father's Grey, on #6 needles that were probably a little small for the wool, and is tremendously warm. Useful in Montana in the winter.

Has anyone else seen the "WWEZD" tee shirt?

  • First? That's now my favorite BSJ. Ever. And we've seen some serious ones around here. Second, I love that you EZ'd the Starmore. Because that's mixing two big magics. You probably have superpowers when you wear it. And finally, I must have the T-shirt. Please tell me where to find it.

  • Love the BSJ (the buttons are precious beyond belief!) and your modification of the Starmore sweater is masterful - great job!

    I must find one of those shirts - where did you see it?

  • That is one seriously adorable BSJ. I love the way that you've added your own style to both the jacket and the sweater. Great job!

  • At the risk of being redundant and possibly boring -- that is one astounding BSJ! And, yes, the T-shirt sounds like a must-have. Is that possible? Won't the Muggles be thoroughly confused!

  • Thanks for the kind comments! I EPS'd a Dale ski sweater last year--- I'll post that one of these days too. A woman at my local yarn shop (LYS, right?) had the WWEZD tee shirt, and I was wondering if anyone else did. I'll track her down and she if she knows where they come from. She may have made it herself. I'll post it when I find it!

  • Gotta have that shirt!!! I'm a huge fan of EZ, having only found her last year. The BSJ is just wonderful, and the Starmore too. Very well done. :O) samm

  • Hi Christina! This is Rebecca, previously at your LYS! The WWEZD shirt was my own design, which I had been selling on CafePress. If there's an interest in them, I could put them up again.

    Love your BSJ! And thanks for directing me to this site so many months ago. :)

  • Love your BSJ and would definitely be interest in a WWEZD shirt if they make it on the market again.
