Baby Surprise Heretic

I had this whole other post written up about how, even though the BSJ is somewhat of a sacred cow in the blogoknitosphere, that it’s really only an OK knit and that I probably wouldn’t do it again, that the pattern is too much of a PITA (I mean seriously, you shouldn’t have to have a support group and a spread sheet to get through the pattern for a teeny little baby sweater!!) and that the finished knit is really not that cute (sure, it’s cute enough, but there are lots of cute baby sweater patterns out there. Lots.). I wrote that post after I’d finished knitting the sweater but before I’d sewn the sleeves or added buttons or blocked.


Then, I sewed up the seams, attached the little buttons, and blocked it.


I think I’m hooked.  The details are [raveled].
