Caught With My Pants Down.......out came a Surprise (the story behind my EZ Baby Surprise Jacket)

My brother-in-law and his girlfriend got pregnant about 7 months ago. I found out mid July. Due to the fact that I found out from a friend whose friend is not so friendly with my brother-in-law it was not a subject that DH and I discussed outside of the home. And it was never really announce either. But Huba spent 3 days a week at my brother-in-law’s house this summer for golf. Well, when Huba came home saying, “J____ is pregnant. And Grandma is hot because she wasn’t told in a timely fashion.” It confirmed the rumor. Then also with J showing it was something that became quite obvious. But still something that we didn’t talk about. So off to the yarn store I went. Red, White, and Blue Real Wool for EZ’s Baby Surprise Jacket. And I started working on it. I was rather resistant to working on it as I really didn’t know J, I like Grandma was a little bent that we weren’t properly told, and for other unmentionable reasons. (That I will not mention) Beginning of August Huba came home and told me that J was having a baby boy. Well, we all know how many projects I always have going. I had a baby boy sweater made and sitting in my stash waiting for a home. So I stopped working on the BSJ. Easy as pie. Crossed it off my list. Yep..... Well Labor Day Weekend it was announce that there is was going to be a baby shower for J the following Saturday. (this weekend past.) Well, I let the week pass without much thought. I had a knitted boy sweater and a crochet afghan that was already to go. Well, Friday morning I made mention where I got the information of the sex of the baby from. DH decided to leave a message for his brother that morning. Friday afternoon I rode my bike down to the LYS and as I was sitting there visiting I got the phone call. “They don’t know the sex of the baby.” Up from my chair I went panicked all the way home. Which luckily was downhill as I was on my bike. I drug out the Red, White, and Blue EZ BSJ and went to knitting. I only had about a quarter finished. DH went to a friend’s son’s high school football game. I guess jokes were made about sparks and smoke coming off my needles in my panic. I knitted into the night and fell asleep with cramping fingers. I woke up Saturday morning, fingers still sore, and hit the needles again. The shower was at 3pm. About 1230 I finished the sweater. I had to create a pocket to cover the area where you picked up the stitches because the red and white were not playing well with each other. A quick little wash and outside it went to air dry. Of course it was still damp when I went to leave so it rode shotgun to the baby shower......


So of course last night I vowed that I would never get caught with my pants down. I will always have a boy, girl, and it baby sweater completed and ready to be gifted. I casted on for Kate Gilberts Peapod Set in the Peach Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.

Oh crap... my niece is due to have a baby sometime in September. I'm pretty sure she's having a girl. We've not seen her since she was three because of a messy divorce and politics, but I still feel a need to make something. Maybe I'll try a BSJ... afterall, everyone else on the planet has made them.
