I've started the Baby Surprise Jacket. So far, so good. And, I am going to try socks again. I ordered some sock yarn in red and white (cream and crimson) to knit some socks for dad. I also bought Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles, and two sets of circs in both the wood and metal from KP, as well. We'll see.
Another awesome coincidence: I just finished a book about Afghanistan. I just started the BSJ. I opened the latest issue of World Ark, the magazine of Heifer International, and saw an article on Ann Rubin, who started the famous charity knitting program, Afghans for Afghans. And what is she holding in the picture? A BSJ.
