Knitting Adventures: Festival Jumper

Happy Daisy Knitting Adventures Amy Edwards Green
Ready the finished-project-klaxon! I finished up my Festival Jumper over the weekend and I'm still on the high you get when you finish a big project!

It's from a pattern in this issue of Simply Knitting magazine that I knitted with Rowan Organic Purelife Cotton in Oak Apple, it's a lightweight cotton - perfect for cool summer evenings. I was initially a little daunted by the lace stitch pattern as it's a little more complicated than anything I've attempted before, but it was actually really straightforward after the first couple of repeats!

I've been working on it since mid May - I was getting along with it really well, but I had an enforced six week break to 'rest' on doctors orders - it turns out Repetitive Strain is actually really painful. Anyway, I took it out on Friday night and realised just how near to finishing it I was and that was all the encouragement I needed! 

It's a little shorter than the jumpers I usually wear, but I'm really happy with it. I've come a long way since knitting my first jumper last summer.
