Just finished this funky, groovy jumper.
I bought this fabulous "James C Brett" yarn way back in August in a little shop in St Austell, Cornwall. There was only 4 balls available, so I bought them all thinking I would find something to do with them.
I had a bag pattern that I had been meaning to do for a while, but when I started, the yarn felt so incredibly gorgeous I thought it was a bit of a waste to make a bag with it. So I started a jumper. YEP, I started a jumper, only owning 4 balls of this yarn! Does anyone else do that?
I found the pattern HERE. (you might have to make an account to view it)
The yarn is James C Brett, Monsoon, shade 5. It is an Aran weight with a 70% Acrylic 30% Wool mix.
Of course I got so far and ran out :)
Luckily, I managed to track some down online and ordered it.
At first I was unsure about the arm fitting, looks a bit strange huh? I thought it would make the jumper fit a bit funny, but it doesn't. It actually hangs quite nice. I would show you a photo of me wearing it, but I am still to be convinced that I don't look like a DFS bargain basement sofa! (Other furniture stockists are available)
I love 3/4 sleeves - so much less to get messy when you craft. And I really like this jumper, once I pluck up the courage to wear it I am sure it will be a firm favourite.
