I’ve been wittering (twit-twoo-ing?) about this jumper since February and, finally, on the hottest day of the year I finished it! (Hence why there’s a surprise extra blogpost today. SO EXCITED.)
Cue a photo of me trying to look like a catalogue model, but ending up just looking smug:
I approached this jumper as a learning curve, not beating myself up if anything went slightly wrong, which it did. There were slightly too many stitches, meaning that the owls are only on the front. I also had to restart the yoke at one point, after I’d taken the stitch markers out, so my waist shaping is at the front of the jumper. Hey ho, I still love it and am quite proud of it! Had I not had a small human to look after, I probably would have done this in a couple of weeks.
Here is a close up of the owls:
I’ll be making one of these for D, mark my words. It was SO easy!
