Finally, I have finished my first knitted jumper. I started this jumper about 2 years ago, then I had to unravel it. I lost a bit of weight which I didn't expect after my 3rd child, Little Lou. He is a big eater - he's 14kg and I'm still breast feeding him. Some days I think food goes in my mouth out my breasts. So now I have a bit yarn left over for a scarf or gloves.
The pattern I used is Klaralund from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton. It's a very easy pattern and is just 4 pieces sewn together. I made the body a bit shorter as I wasn't sure how it was going to look. I think that if I knitted it longer it would have been a tent on me. The sleeves are a bit long but it's not going to bother me too much. I'm happy that I have finally finished it and I learned a new stitch, mattress stitch, to sew my jumper together without showing where it has been joined.
I used Noro Wool 84 J, a mix of reds greens brown and pinks. I love this colour way.
