Another Jumper

I now know today why I have felt so tired the last couple of days. I have a temperature, glands like marbles down the whole right side of my neck, sore throat and earache. Not the best way to feel when the sun is shining outside.

As I was sat under my quilt I finished knitting this jumper. There was not much knitting left to do on the sleeve so that didn't take long to do at all, but the sewing up was another matter. This yarn is lovely to knit with, but it is murder to sew up.
I love the way the body on this jumper is shaped, I've not knit a pattern with this before, and I can't wait to wear it.
This week on the Lakeland tapestry, I was able to enjoy a few colour changes. Some of the plants are now being stitched. It will be back to the water this week.

I am now beginning to get into this so I may decide to do a bit more on this each week. I am just going to see how my other projects pan out over the next few weeks.

Yuck, I think I've got the same lurgy, what a pain to be stuck indoors feeling grotty all weekend when the sun is shining! Looks like you made good use of the time though the jumper is great!
