want warmth wear wool...


what good timing...the weather down here is freezing, the gas supply to the state is in disarray, but i have a new winter woolly to keep me warm. finished at last. this wool is sooo lovely to work with, and the colours in it are divine. i am off to gather some more Jo Sharp Yarn...unless anyone can suggest something better to use...

the pattern...now that's another issue...it is on the large side, but i kept stitching hoping all was well and then had gone too far to undo it. i wanted a jacket though, to wear over other things, so in that regard, i think it makes the grade.....if i did it again i would knit down a size....and yes i did a tension square for the first time in my life!!

it took three goes at buying the buttons

clearly i am not the only one that likes Jo Sharp's wool

Nothing keeps you warm like wool can. And that jumper looks wonderful. I love the buttons you chose.

I LOVE that jacket! Is the pattern available online?

Can't recall how I found your blog, but I'm enjoying it very much.
