20.1.14

jumper two complete


At the beginning of 2013 I set myself the resolution 'hand knit two jumpers' fortunately, unlike my blog each month resolution, this was one I managed to complete! I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't quite make it as I didn't start this one till around August but moving house and not having much to do in the evenings has lead to lots of knitting (in fact I have a cape, pillow and scarf I need to photograph and share too) I've been thoroughly enjoying knitting more regularly it's making me a happier person! I think I'll keep resolutions simple for 2014… more knitting! 

I took a few shots of the details of the jumper that I particularly liked, the fair isle stripe across the top, the combination of colours, I loved the orange/brown accents on the cuffs and collars, and the texture of the yarn - it has wonderful fleck's of colour in it. I knitted it using Rowan fine tweed and it's the 'Halla' pattern from the Nordic Tweed pattern book which has a beautiful range of patterns in! Happy New Year!
