Finish the jumper I started knitting in March 2010...

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

To finish knitting this jumper was one of my resolutions for 2012 and here it is - the finished article, just in the nick of time! I completed the final stitch on December 23rd, I absolutely couldn't let it go into it's fourth year on the needles.


I have to be honest, I'm not entirely in love with it but I was determined to get it finished. It's warm and will do perfectly well for cold days at home. Do you knit? Have you ever finished something and decided that you don't like it?

Linking up, for the first time, with Ta-dah! Tuesday


In other exciting news, I found out today that, I've won £100 of vouchers for Spartoo in the style is ethical oufit competition with this outfit. Check out some of the other entries - I love the upcycled sari dresses of Orange and Apples and Words and Stuff.

    1. I really loved the wool, I do like the finished thing, I'm just not crazy about it which is a shame considering how long it took me!
