I am an intelligent person who can count to 100.

I have been knitting for many many moons.

I have knit many baby sweaters.

I love to knit with Koigu.

Many of those baby sweaters were knit in Koigu.

I think garter stitch shows of Koigu brilliantly.

All of my Koigu baby sweaters were knit in garter stitch.

So why am I getting my ass kicked by Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket?

Hubris.

I can't knock on a knitting hero, EZ, but let's face it, it's probably those vague instructions!

If at first you don't succeed, try try again. I agree with Marissa

the instructions are indeed vague. i found this link: "notes from Dawn Adcock" on the ravelry pattern page VERY helpful. i hope it will do the same for you. i just finished mine and i love it!

Ditto with marissa & andrea, I love EZ as much as the next knitter, but she has a funny way of being vague when you need a little more. Yeah we want to be thinking knitters, but throw us a fricking bone here.

I must have ripped out my February 3-4 times this weekend b/c of the vague directions. I still messed up a bit but the mommy-to-be won't notice at this point and I AM NOT ripping out again. Check out the zimmermania group on ravelry. They might have some helpful words of wisdom.

I've heard that happens to the best!

I LOVE that colorway. The sweater's going to be beautiful.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. :)
