Late Thursday afternoon I was asked to knit a jumper for a 3 year old who needed a jumper in a 4 year old size. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but they needed it for next Saturday.
I immediately went on Ravelry to find a pattern. My choice would have been a straightforward stockinette jumper, but I couldn’t find one suitable. In the end I found a half cabled, half fisherman so rib one.
There was nowhere local to buy the wool, so I went to the next best place, Black Sheep Wools. Something was going to go my way, as the yarn was to be Aran weight. I immediately ordered the wool and crossed my fingers that it would arrive swiftly.
Yesterday, the yarn arrived. A huge 400g ball of scrumptious Aran weight yarn
The pattern (luckily) was very intuitive, so I got quite far by bedtime last night. I had wanted to get as far as the armholes, but by 1:15am I was worn out and my concentration was disappearing fast, so I called it a night.
