Easy knit Jumper

This was wonderful to knit and it fits really well. The wool is Sirdar Escape You can find it Here. It has really nice drop shoulders, which I love and I really like the collar on this pattern as well. This is an old pattern I have had it for years (also by Sirdar) it should have a pattern on the front but as the wool is so busy I thought the pattern would be lost, So made the executive decision to leave it out haha One of the joys of making things your self.

Here is a close up of the wool. Very soft,  has a mix of 51% wool & 49% acrylic so it can be washed in the machine, although I wouldn't wear this jumper without a T-Shirt or some sort of vest underneath to save on the itch factor lol.

As I learnt to crochet this year, I thought I would crochet all the seams instead of darning them, look at the neat finish. Very pleased with this. I hope you  will have time to leave a comment and lead me to your blog, I would love to see what you're up to as well. I have found a few blogs you may like to have a nosey at just click on them (down the right hand side) there is lots of free stuff and buckets of inspiration, have fun Dawn xx

Seeing pretty pieces like this I wish I could knit, too. But I´m not patient enough :)
