Surprise is certainly what DH expressed when he opened his birthday present this year! It was this jumper (and a few other goodies as well) which I had begun knitting in 2014.
|Pattern: Sirdar Click Chunky #9390|
Yarn: Morris & Sons Estate 14ply - Mouse
14ply - brilliant, I thought, should knit up nice and quick in this lovely rib pattern. not so, the more I knitted, the harder and bulkier it was to handle. Perfect for winter knitting because I could drape it on my lap when the nights were cold.
My sons were with me when I purchased the wool and so they chose the colour, knowing that it was going to be for their Dad.
A thoroughly satisfying finished project, if I do say so myself. And... the bonus is that he loves it!!
