Just to say, ‘I am not a knitter’! the last thing  I knit in earnest (apart from the tea cosy…) must have been about twenty five years ago, but when my son said hand knitted jumpers were flooding the high street, I thought I’d have a go.

So when in the wilds of the Heelands, good old t’internet came to the rescue and I got a pattern, wool and other knitting essentials and started to knit an arran jumper. So I knitted, and knitted, came home and knitted (not so quickly now..), until last night (about some six weeks four days after I started), this appeared:

What a feat...

What a feat…

To say I’m a bit chuffed is an understatement – do you think he’ll notice the deliberate error where I did one of the cables on the back the wrong way round???!!

    Wow, that’s a terrific effort – well done! I am always pondering with the idea of tackling an arran kit (my granny used to make it look so easy!) but so far my courage has failed me!

    Well done. I have been knitting, on and off, for years but would never attempt anything this complicated.
