It's a long time since I finished off a big knitting project and posted about it. Over a year ago, in fact. I finished off several projects for Alice last summer but as I was on a blogging pause they passed by without notice.
After my knitting failure on my last cardigan, I decided on a jumper to knit whilst I pondered the future of my lovely blue yarn*. I have mentioned before that I have no idea how this pattern made its way into my favourites but I have been wanting to knit it for some time but there was always another project ahead of it in the queue.
It was a great knit. Those endless rows on the body made so much quicker because there was just enough interest in the pattern to make it feel like it was going faster. I had real difficulty when I came to join the front and back under the arm (it is knit top down) there was a basic chart provided for front and back but it didn't show how to bring the two sections together. After two failed attempts I decided I needed to write out a chart and bingo it all came together. This is a free pattern so this is not a criticism at all, I immensely grateful for all knitters who share their patterns for no financial gain to themselves.
So there we have it. My first big knit of 2016. Here's to many more!
