J is for Jumper

I’m not very good at knitting jumpers and cardigans.  Or at least, I’ve knitted them, but them completely failed to sew them up in two cases, and in other cases I’ve just not got very far on the knitting itself.  I do keep seeing patterns I like, but frequently they’re in the American ‘worsted’ weight, which is half way between the DK and aran weights more commonly available here… which leads to so much indecision on what would be best to know them in that I never get started at all!  I don’t know, it’s all terribly stressful ;-)

What I do want to finally finally do (although I’ve been saying this for some time) is get those two that I’ve got all the knitted pieces for, sewn up and finished.  Those are my “Menace Jumper” and a big chunky cardigan from a Sirdar pattern.  That one’s going to be cosy come winter, assuming it still fits me!  It has been a while since I started knitting it, after all.  Like, what, four years?  Whoops!  Maybe I should take one of them with me tomorrow to World Wide Knit In Public Day – if it’s going to be fine, I’ll have space to spread out more.  It could be a plan!  I’ll let you know how it goes in tomorrow’s post.
