Here is the jumper I have been working on. I found the pattern in Yours magazine. It was described as "for knitters with some experience". I'd say that was a fair description. The tricky parts were the neckline and shoulders. I am well used to knitting v-necks and shoulders. But the magazine didn't really help matters when it published the photo back to front. It showed the buttons on the right shoulder and I had to read the pattern several times to make sure I was following it correctly.
I'm calling this a free jumper as the wool came to me as a donation from a Freecycler and the buttons were sent to me by Joanne of the Cup On The Bus blog. The photo doesn't show them clearly but they are lovely wooden buttons and go well with the real wool.
I knitted the size that should fit a seven year old child. That has left me with about 100g of the wool which should be enough to make a matching hat or scarf. Then I will be sending them off to Operation Orphan.
I now have absolutely no works in progress. I can't remember the last time that happened. Decisions, decisions.
