I mentioned the other day that I haven't been doing too much quilting recently.
Part of the reason for that is that I have had my knitting needles out.
After the success of Scallywag's hoodie, Mr Tartankiwi has been hinting and hinting and hinting that he wants me to knit him a jumper too. He was very specific that he wanted double thickness 4 ply merino just like Scallywag. I agreed on condition that he didn't want stripes (Keeping 8 balls of wool tangle free at one point during the knitting of Scallywag's jumper drove me a bit batty!)
The wool is a different brand to the merino that I used for Scallywag. It is amazingly soft and is knitting up beautifully. The only problem is that knitting such a large size jumper is sloooow work. It feels like I've been busy forever and I am only 2/3 of the way with the back panel. I've got a long way to go!
Wish me luck, the strength to stick with this and not to get bored or sidetracked halfway through! (Oh, and keep your fingers crossed that I don't run out of wool... I've got a very bad feeling that I'm quite a bit short!)
