I actually finished a bit of my Christmas knitting! Over the last week or so I managed to finish my Agnes jumper. I actually find big needles and chunky yarn really hard going on my hands so I cant do a long stint. Also I really hate knitting sleeves.. This time I did the sleeves using magic loop on a long circular needle, which made it a bit easier.
I used Alafoss Lopi in a black heathered shade (a nightmare to photograph) and bigger needles as I wanted a looser jumper, quite a lot of the finished jumpers on Ravelry are quite fitted and short so I wanted mine a bit longer. I used green Lettlopi for the little pockets.
It is so warm!!! I love the look of these kind of jumpers but I’ve come to realise that I find it really hard to knit simple jumpers.. obviously knitting Fair Isle gives me goals! Now I’ve made it though, im glad i did!
Happy New Year everyone, thanks for all the support this year and all the best for 2015
