Last year I made The raspberry jumper which ended up in a major knitting fail, when I had blocked it and felted it trying to save time by giving it a spin in the washer.

That scared me from trying to knit more sweaters for me for over a year, but now I’m ready to try again.

The same kind of yarn - only in a dark lovely teal, that I got from my Husband at the same time as the red yarn.
Slightly different design, but still: A boatneck pullover.

Nov 1st 2011: TodayI got to the part, where I seperated the front/back from the sleeves. I’ve only been knitting at meetings and conferences at work, so that’s pretty fast .-)

Nov 18: After letting the sweater rest for a few days, I started the first sleeve.

Nov 28: Finished second sleeve. Now I need to finish knitting the body (I waited with the last bit to make sure I have enough yarn) - about 10 cm.

Dec 3: Finished. I haven’t blocked it yet, though.

Dec 5: Took pics. I still haven’t blocked the jumper, but I thought I would get some pics while we had some light. But it is still impossible to get the camera to capture the colour. It is much more green-ish than the photo shows.
