It's done! It's finally done! And with 3 days to spare.
I'm really happy with this jumper, I think it's the best Christmas jumper I've made for hubby yet. It fits him really well (no boobies!):
Pattern: Square Dance (my own design!) but using EZs Seamless Raglan Sweater for guidance
Yarn: Grey Acrylic DK (hubbys choice)
Needles: 3.5mm & 4mm KnitPicks options
Here's a gratuitous Christmas shot. He didn't have it on for long, just to see if it fit ok. Then I whipped it off until Christmas Day!
I think I might write up the pattern for this and of course the sooper seekrit vest I made Dad over the Christmas holidays.
Speaking of holidays, mine came early! We had another belt of snow, almost as soon as the previous one had melted. I think we had more this time too. It snowed for 14 hrs straight yesterday so I left work early and we headed home. Good job too! The previous night it took hubby 4 1/2 hrs to travel home from work, a distance of 14km. Shocking. This country just falls apart when it snows.
So, schools were closed today and we worked from home. I was due to start my holidays tomorrow anyway, so yay! I'm off now until January 10. So excited! I plan to do lots of crafty things.
Here's a few snowy pics I took this evening:
The depth of snow on the back of my car. Bear in mind this is nearest the front door, so it wasn't the deepest snow! I love the sparkles on the roof.
This is the path outside my back door. I reckon there's about 6" of snow.
This beauty (among many others) is hanging from my gutter right over the back door. I've watched it grow all day. It's fairly impressive! I think it's gorgeous.
I also put out food and water for the poor birds. They must have been starving, they landed and started eating & drinking straight away! Although the water didn't last long before it froze over.
So now I can start my new project! Remember I said I'd love some knee high socks? Well Tara had a great idea, make legwarmers instead! I think I might expand on that cleverness and do some boot toppers, so it looks like I've amazingly fabulous hand knit knee high socks on, but they're not! Muhahaha.
Think I can finish them by Christmas Day? Nah. Me either, but it'll be fun to try.
