Finished my jumper!



















Hello all. I have finished my jumper and I am very pleased with it. I made it shorter than the pattern and I made a shorter neckband (I am not very tall) I now want to make one in another colour! Are you the same? When you find something that fits, do you buy another one? I am terrible at that. I always buy two if I find something I really like. Anyway. I have bought some pink wool and will make another.

Nothing much else to report. All is well here. Very cold this morning. Soup weather soon!!!!!!!!
Hope you are all having a FANTASTIC week!!!

This is the colour I am starting now:

That was quick! - I think it would take me all of winter to knit something like that, and by the time it's finished the weather would be too hot to wear it!! The pink colour is so nice! And yes, I have been guilty of being the same top more than once, but in different colours - a few months ago I bought a knitted top in black, aqua and tan! And it's not just clothes, I have many pairs of shoes of the same, exact design but different colour!

Hope you are having a great week Suzy :)

Briony said...

It's perfect! What a speedy knitter!! You've given me the urge to go wool shopping:)

Els said...

Wow Suzy - that's absolutely gorgeous. I can't believe you can make something like that yourself. My attempts at knitting years ago resulted in one very misshapen scarf. I think my grandmother, who was teaching me, took one look and gave up on my knitting skills forever!
