…. the rose jumper I started last year, well to be truthful I finished it about 3 weeks ago for my birthday. I took a photo and forgot to post so as it is a dismal miserable day – again – I’m playing in between doing jobs which are boring but necessary! This is different to the pattern which is from a pattern book called ‘NOUVEAU’. The style is called ‘Sabine’. Admittedly I didn’t do it in the yarn specified but I was assured by my stockist that the yarn I did use was the same. I bought 10 balls but it became obvious that maybe the yarn wasn’t the same. It was a Louisa Harding wool called ‘IANTHE’ colour 12. I’d read somewhere on the web that the pattern knitted up a bit neat, so being a lady of a certain age I decided that the next size up would be best. I have shortened the sleeves and I think if I was to knit in the future I might just do the back without the ‘v’ as I find the style a bit revealing for my taste. I love the jumper though and had lots of compliments when I wear it so that is always a bonus. Very easy to do as the pattern is a simple one and only one repeat.
Well off to do another of the boring Monday jobs.
Enjoy your day and keep smiling as well as crafting.
