What's on my Needles ... or How I Started a Jumper and Lost My Mind.

I'd like to say that this will be a regular post showing off my latest knitting project but what's more likely is that it'll become an epic, never-ending saga involving a beige jumper. But never fear! It'll probably be filled with laughter, tears, tragedy and triumph - hopefully more triumph than anything else. So why not come along for the ride?

I'm knitting said jumper for an unlucky family member's birthday which is 6 weeks from now. Plenty of time. Or is it? So far I have knitted a third of the back in a week. Not great :(

I'm using Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Aran Tweed Yarn in colours 03 and 04 and this pattern. I'm leaving out the fairisle pattern as I don't think the recipient of this jumper will like that - and also I'm lousy at that type of thing. I can't handle too many colours at once!

So, I'll be back with an update sometime next weekend, and hopefully I will have completed the back - keep everything crossed for me!
