I finished this beauty yesterday and soaked it in Eucalan before spinning it and blocking it to dry

Oh my, this jumper grew so much it truly worried me. I could see me having to frog this and knit it again!

This morning it had dried and had somewhat resumed the original shaping but still a bit too open, maybe I should have gone down a needle size?!?!

I took it upon myself to put this garment into the tumble dryer on low for about 10 minutes. The transformation was perfect and now I love it to bits

I was inspired to knit this after seeing Fine Fettle Fibres version, the picture on the pattern itself would not have suited me at all

I am in love!

I forgot to say, I was playing yarn chicken halfway down the second sleeve and I still needed to do the ribbing at the bottom so I purchased another skein, luckily Judith had one in the same dyelot left

I didn’t use too much of the 5th skein but I will use it for some fingerless mittens or something else. It is the most glorious yarn, so very soft and delight to knit with. Not one knot!!!

I spit spliced so not many ends to deal with

Another thought.. I meant to say earlier, I made no changes to the beautifully written pattern other than to add 12 rows of 2 x 2 rib to the sleeves
