Shimmer Jumper


This is another one of those photos where the colour should be deeper,.  Maybe the snow laden skies are playing havoc with the light.

This jumper is knitted in Wendy Shimmer yarn which has now been discontinued.  It was 50p a ball, and I thought the colour was perfect for my friend's little girl.  Anything pink goes down very well.  Think she will need it with the weather we have at the moment.

With this jumper finished, my corner of  UFO's and WIP's is getting very bare.  I'm not sure how much of that is down to projects being completed, or o putting them away.  Actually, I think a lot of the projects I've finished in the last couple of weeks, have been ones that take up a lot of room,  but it is nice to see a bit of space appearing.

I think I need to sort out my WIPS and get them all finished. It just isnt as much fun as starting something though lol

Oh, how fun! She'll love it. And I well recognize that feeling that comes with seeing the WIP pile dwindle :)

It's very satisfying to finish projects that clutter your space. I really have to get around to doing this.

The sweater is adorable.
