Bought a pattern from the wonderful Spinning Weal in Clevedon.
Second knitted garment and a dry run for my mam’s jumper. The idea was to see if I could follow a pattern and make all the mistakes on an experiment.
They no longer had the exact right yarn so I got a close enough type from King Cole called ‘New Orleans’. It’s cleverly dyed such that it looks like Fair Isle or something.
It took 8 weeks to complete.
If you compare the pattern to this last picture, I don’t want to hear about it ;)
