FO2 – Parcel

My first ever jumper is off the needles.
Well it was finished last week, but it’s been too stinking hot to try and model it. (It’s officially Autumn and today is set to be 38 degrees. That’s 100 for all you Fahrenheit folk.)

I started Parcel over a year ago. I remember knitting it at Perth Festival last year. When Perth Festival came around this year I decided it was time to knuckle down and finish this damn thing. As much as I liked the set in sleeves it did mean that whilst knitting them I had a jumper on my lap. Fortunately Hewhofishes likes living in an igloo so it wasn’t too bad.

It was a well written pattern (having no experience to compare it to) and I chose it carefully wanting something with cables, that was knitted in the round, and didn’t have any seaming.

So here it is! All ready for some cooler weather.

I still haven’t figure out how to take a good picture in my crafty room and don’t know whether to blame the model or the lighting.

I knitted a jumper that fits!!! That’s a pretty big achievement.

  1. Gah, it’s so pretty! I love the color and the pattern. Also, I want your hair. You look like an 80s rock star cartoon character, and I mean that in absolutely the best way possible.

  2. Congrats on your first sweater! Looking good, and no small achievement is right!! When do you expect sweater-wearing season there? Around here we’re all looking forward to peeling off a few layers for next week’s forecast full of +5ΒΊC… woohoo! πŸ™‚ ❀

  3. Wow, awesome!! You look great and your jumper is lovely! ^___^ I’m too scared to trying making any woolen clothing for fear that it wouldn’t fit so I’m doubley impressed with your achievements! ^___^

Thanks for stopping by!
