If you follow me on twitter or instagram (or just bump into me on the street to be honest) you'll know that I'm currently knitting my very first jumper! I can't stop talking about it, haha. Normally I stick to smaller projects like hats or socks - I like instant gratification, if a project takes me too long, my mind starts to wander - I have a tendency to get halfway through knitting something and then find something else I want to make (that's obviously ten times more fabulous than the work currently on my needles)... we won't talk about my collection of 'life's work' projects - mainly blankets that I'll be knitting until I'm eighty!
However, I have wanted to make a jumper for so long, and I've finally plucked up the courage! I've knitted the back and the front and half a sleeve. I have a sleeve-and-a-half to finish, as well as the yoked neck, but the end is in sight! It's taken me about two and a half weeks (and a lot of DVD boxsets) so far.
This is a really easy pattern, a lot of stocking stitch which does get a little bit repetitive after a while, but it's good for knitting on the go! I'm aiming to get a sleeve done this week, a sleeve done next week and finish it off the week after, but it all depends on what else is going on - apparently there's a life outside knitting?! A ♥
