I never wanted to make a "BSJ" as it is lovingly called amongst knitters, because it seemed sort of outdated, or over done. I don't know. However sometimes knitting is for the experience, so I decided to join a knit along for said jacket.
I figured since this was just an experiment for me that I would use left over sock yarn.
I have decided that I will probably make another one of these, it was sort of fun, but not right now.
I was convinced that this was going to be the ugliest bsj somewhere in the middle of this.
I used the left over of a couple pair of socks the only boy colors I could find.
then I sewed it up, and added a few of my grandma's vintage buttons that matched perfectly, and it looks very 50's retro to me.
