I finally started sewing buttons onto some of the finished pieces of the jumper which gave me a chance to find out if it was going to work the way I’d planned it. I am pleased with the way it’s turned out so I don’t think I’ve been wasting my time knitting all the different panels.
I wish I’d had enough of the light blue wool to make the lower sleeves but unfortunately I ran out.
In my original plan there was going to be some patterned panels but I don’t think that’s going to happen now. There may be one or two stripey panels but to be honest I think the plain ones look alright.
I still have some more knitting and sewing up to do but at least now I can start wearing the jumper at long last. I realise it won’t be to everyone’s taste and it certainly won’t set the fashion world on fire but as it’s me who will be wearing it I’m not bothered.
Talk to you later,
