Pushing The Envelope

I know better than to knit under pressure and timelines. When you do or at least when I do, I am not at my best. Thats the case of this latest BSJ.

There are several things I don't like about it, but I am not changing it, the shower is about an hour away and quite frankly, I'm ready to get back to knitting for me.

Whats wrong? To start the button is too big and heavy (you can't tell from the picture, but it is a baseball). The collar is too small....I took the short way out and used the collar instead of ICord which might have looked better. And it is not exactly the Braves jacket I was going for. However, on Rav, I did see a Cardinals one I want to duplicate for later this year for a baby.

I'm going to use the same yarn for the Cardinals one, but I have never seen such a yarn that had so much static. That was unbelieveable and annoying.

Back to regular scheduled knitting.

Static? Weird....what yarn is it?

The yarn used is Plymouth DreamBaby. Truly weird.
