Exciting but what jumper??????

Well – started looking around at patterns.   Oh dear – bit dull…..

Eventually on Pinterest – something a bit better:


So…   let’s have stripes.  Into local knitting shop…

King Cole double knitting (busom-hiding thickness) in rather nice colours.  Asked for tiny sample of each (one inch) – knitting shop said ‘no’. Oh dear.

Ordered online – much cheaper and loads more colours.  Bog standard v-neck jumper pattern with rib welt (internet feebie full of errors).

Oh joy – my wool has arrived!!!!
