Ain't No Patti Boyd
Well here is the 1960's Cabled Jumper finished and in my best modelling pose thanks to Cindy who organised the photo shoot yesterday at The Knitting Coven. It is such a warm snuggly jumper and I am very pleased with the finished result, which for me is something unique as I am quite a perfectionist when it comes to my knitting.
This photo shows the detail of the cables, centre rib panel and collar. I was left with very little wool so there is nearly a kilo of wool in the jumper making it quite heavy and definately for cold winter days only.
What is inside this box? A special knitting project for somebody in my knitting group. Each year we do secret santa for a person in our group, we draw a name out of a hat and we give that person a gift at our Christmas get together. This can be anything from chocolates to a handmade gift. At the moment all I can say is that this knit is extremely addictive and I am enjoying knitting it very much, sorry but you will have to wait till the end of the year for all to be revealed.
