This is my first large project with the new wool available from Jamieson and Smith’s Heritage range. It is nice to knit and I look forward to wearing this garment when complete.
All six colours available in Shetland Heritage are in this project. I look forward to seeing the new colours that will be added later this year to the Shetland Heritage range .
9/7/13 Hood almost done now and I have only to cut the steek on it and get the finishing done around the edges. I have already sewn in the ends on the body and just the sleeves and hood ends to weave in. Nearly there and I am on holiday, so shouldn’t be too long now.
17/7/13 I have finished it now and it is on the jumper board being blocked. The wool has stretched fine with the washing so it has grown slightly more than I thought it might - this is fine as I like things generous. I will keep it under wraps until I have it photographed by someone wearing it. That’ll be soon.
