Well, I neglected the ironing yesterday, but I did complete the pullover. The great thing about knitting in the round is that you don't have to sew pieces together, when you've finished knitting that's it, bar hiding a few threads.
There's a reason I've been knitting this sweater rather frantically: Jack's work jersey has stretched beyond practicality and I don't want him to wear the cabled sweater I knitted last winter on the farm. The thought of having it snagged on a fence or covered in grease from a windmill made my fingers fly! This sweater is very plain and a serviceable colour and I'm mentally prepared to deal with mishaps.

Jane, that looks great and worm, would have loved to have one now, because we have the so called "sheap cold days" in Germany, another realy cold period before the summer comes, .. hopefully;-))And luccky you are not to sew together, so also a few less thread ends, right;-)ReplyDelete
The yarn is 20% wool, so it is warm. Surprisingly light, too. Which was good when I had the whole thing in my lap, the disadvantage of knitting in the round! Yes, there were very few threads to hide. I hope your weather will warm up soon!Delete
Jane, that makes a lot of sense!ReplyDelete
How nice that you can help your man be warm during his everyday work too.
Do you have some frilly project in mind now that you finished this?
I'm going to try to make some progress on my tatted edging now! I have a few balls of this wool left, I'm thinking of using it to make a scarf for my son. I'll mull over the idea for a bit while I tat.Delete
