With one day to spare! Admittedly, the freshly cast off collar needs to be blocked down, but it’s done. And I love it! Perfect fit, comfortable, squishy and very, very cosy.
It looked a little small while I was knitting it up, but it blocked out very easily, and on a very fashionable towel…
Seaming was remarkably quick, given all the seams were straight lines. A dropped shoulder design does have its advantages!
I do have a couple of qualms about the pattern though. I love Thea Coleman designs, and this is a beautiful jumper. However, the ribs on the front and back pieces didn’t line up….
Four years of a PhD have knocked any perfectionism out of me, but I can see this being very frustrating for the more pedantic of knitters.
My other little gripe is that the pattern is written entirely in imperial units, which I find incredibly frustrating. Especially in a pattern that was otherwise so professional and well tested.
Anyway, I am off for an exciting weekend away and have to pack! I need a new knitting project for the train… hmmmm… to Ravelry!
