    About

    99% of my projects have been for other people, this was my first adult size jumper project. It isn't the easiest of patterns for me to follow but I've never attempted anything like this before! After ripping out and starting again around 10 times this is finally how it is going! I'm glad it's finally finished! Cables are not to be done unless you can have complete peace and quiet for the several hours it took! One of those pieces I'd put down in frustration but pick up again 5 minutes later so as not to be defeated! Many rows of stitch by stitch unpicking through wrong side placed stitches on cables :( proudly accomplished though! I'm still not 100% sure the sleeves are supposed to be that much longer?

      They can be frustrating, it's a complicated pattern to tackle first time, you've done extremely well. ❤️👏🏻❤️Keep cabling though it's a great skill to have.

        Thanks Julia, it was very frustrating at the time, I couldn’t wait to finish it and wondered why I did! But the sense of achievement at the end and the fact I still get asked where I got it from now is fab!
