Finished at last


It's taken a while, but finally J's jumper is now completed.  This was in fact my last finish for 2009, and I can't say I am sorry to see the end of it.  Why is it that boys of a certain age like black! 

Seeing it laid out complete, I can't get over how much he has grown.  Who would have believed that when he was born, he was a little scrap of six and a half pounds, with no fat on him at all.  I mean no fat, he didn't even have cheeks on his bum, because he had got so starved.  He's definitely made up for that in the 13 years since, and now I am having to knit almost man sized jumpers for him.

Now this one is done, I have D's to do.  Thankfully, it's not black, but it is aran, and has a cable pattern. I am going to try and get as much done as I can before they get home, this one isn't going to be so easy to pick up and put done between them coming in and out.

A very nice man-sized sweater. So many beautiful colors in the world and they all prefer black. Go figure. But you are a good mom to make him what he likes.

Have a great 2010.
