FO: Lavenda Jumper, from A Stitch in Time Volume 2

Or as I like to call it, my Strawberry Pips Jumper because the bobbles look like strawberry seeds.

Yarn: Merino Bambino, 7.8 balls.
Time: 6 weeks.

I can't wait for winter (or even autumn) to wear this number out - I might even take it to the USA as Chicago is going to be pretty cold I hear.

The sleeves are more puffed than in the pattern photo - but I like puff so that was fine by me. It was a pretty easy knit too. The yarn is a baby wool, and its such an intense red that my camera kept blurring the photos - these were the only ones that came out ok. Very bizarre.

Mods: The only real mods I made were to knit the sleeve and waist ribbing on 3mm needles so they didnt look so tight.

Anchor Brooch, self made.

The pattern is very straightforward, the style is flattering and its cute to boot.
I think this is my favourite thing that i've knitted to date!

This knit looks fab in that color, it really suits you too. I may have to give that one a go.
