winter jumper


winter jumper, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

Here's what I'm mostly knitting now - a jumper (sweater/pullover) for me. The pattern is Wisteria by Kate Gilbert from Twist Collective. The yarn is gorgeous. It's Airedale Aran, a soft 3-ply Bluefaced Leicester yarn from Texere in a pinky-purpley colour called Berry. The yoke zipped along, all those beautiful cables and now I'm into the relatively boring body section, which makes good DVD watching or talking to friends knitting. I've got vague thoughts of trying to do NaKniSweMo and finish it by the end of November. Maybe. There are various bits of Christmas kntting which should probably be a higher priority though.

Nice.I want to knit. Maybe you can help me find a pattern that I would like and stuff to make it with.

That's such a gorgeous jumper, Bekki!

I've become addicted to craft blogs lately, and I'm looking forward to learning how to sew, knit and crochet after the PhD is done.

Hope you're well.
