Well I thought I would share one of mine. Itís my second attempt (well third if I include my odd sockÖ. donít ask! ).
This took an age to knit too- I started knitting it last September, did two months then gave up for the making of Christmas presents and then took it up again on and off in the New Year to finish the fronts and back and part sleeve. I manage to finish all the pieces in the summer time- in reality it only took about 4/5 months out of the year- but like many of my projects they are started with gusto then I loose the will to live with it and start something new.
Anyway itís from a 1940ís pattern and has the best shoulders ever! It should have pockets but I wanted to save the leftover for a matching beret- it should also have buttons with loopy bits but I havenít got round to that yet or rather my mum hasnít (I cant crochet). I donít think the fastening is urgent as I wear it often with just the belt.
Hope you like it
Btw Miss Sis your stocking stitch is sooo neat. Mine is getting worse- I blame it on my hate for purl rows and the fact Iím a lefty (Please donít say youíre one too- it will shatter me!). I also like the idea of wearing a tie with a collared jumper like that too; I often wear cravats, but never thought of ties- thanks! You did a great job on that- I certainly donít envy you on the making up with the inverted pleat and all.
Lauren your sweater is so cute. I bet that was dream to knit (I love cables) and itís in a colour I have been looking for in a 4ply for an age, no luck yet!
