>I finished knitting the pink jumper and sewed it up last night. It didn’t look right before I washed it but now that it’s washed and dried the wool has fluffed out a bit and it looks better.
I did fully fashioned decreases at the neckline thinking that it would look neater. Now that I’ve finished it I can’t decide whether I like the look of the neckline or not. I think I may stick to doing the decreases on the first stitch in future or doing cut and sew.
Next I will be making a plain blue v neck jumper. I created the pattern for it with Knitware a few weeks ago so it’s just a matter of printing it off and getting started on it.
I don’t think I’ll be making any more short sleeved jumpers for a while, I’m sticking to long sleeves now until the Spring – there’s definitely a chill in the air.
Here’s the houndstooth double jacquard sample that I knitted the other week:
I really don’t know if I want to use it now,what do you all think? I think it looks a bit naff. This is probably going to be another one of my bright ideas that turns out to be not so bright after all.
Talk to you later,
