Notes

In a moment of total insanity it occurred to me to try to knit an entire Christmas jumper for our staff “wear a Christmas jumper to work” fundraiser.

Casting on - 23 November.
Deadline - 13 December.

So I didn’t make the deadline. However I had to wear it to work, and the top picture shows how far I got. I didn’t want to cut the working yarns so attached them with knitting needles. This outfit caused much merriment and raised a few pounds for the cause.

Completed in time for Christmas!

Lovely pattern. Put an extra inch in the waist and an extra inch on the sleeves. The latter could have done with more, tbh, but it’s not a deal-breaker.
