      Hi Jenni,
      Love your sweater, the colours work so well together. Is the body worked in the round?

        Thanks so much Heather! I used Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK in Alabaster and Julep. Have you tried the yarn before? It's so lovely to work with.

        My first jumper was a disaster with one sleeve 10cm longer than another.
        Great job, Jenni! beautiful colour combination :)
