Bennett's BSJ Done

Good Afternoon All,

My official end to summer - my pool was closed and winterized today. Had a great morning visiting with my landscaper to finalize the design plans for my back yard. Project should start in the next couple of weeks. Then spent the rest of the morning knitting. I am almost done with Bennett's jacket that I started last saturday. Finished the jacket this afternoon.

EZ ASJ

I had several requests for a photo of the ES Adult Surprise Jacket I knitted for my wife. Here is a picture needs the buttons and blocking. I used a Noro for the stripping and a co-ordinated a honey brown wool to pair with it. I followed her pattern as written in School House Press Pattern #5.

EZ BSJ School House Press Pattern #5

Hi guys,

What a week. Just got back friday from Memphis. At 2:20 am tuesday morning the call came - my first grandchild was on his way and about to be born. Wife and I rushed out of the house and headed out of STL down highway 55 to Memphis (4 hours). Missed the birth by 9 miles. Mother and grandson are doing well and my son is as proud as can be. Who can blame him.
