My current WIP made me realise that in addition I can make garment that you cannot find in the shops! There are so many patterns out there that have delicate lace work embedded in them, or the right amount of quirkiness that will make it my favourite garment.
I have talked about Nord before, and yes I had to start it there and then. In a very wise move, I finished the back first - on the basis that this would really be boring but that I knew that the thought of knitting of the front panel would keep me going.
And it has not disappoint. For the first few rows I was really wondering whether the diagonal would show, but now 66 rows in I can see where we are going with this.
I just wished I could have shown you the cross-over but I am not there yet, but soon. Cannot wait! So why do you knit your own jumpers?
Linking up my WIP to Small Things today.
