Day 3 ...


is an FO today!
Pattern: Style 16 Zip Sweater with Rib Sleeves, Patons Book1266
Size: 105 cms
Yarn: Bendigo Rustic - Midnight and 1 ball Jet grey for collar insert of zipper.
I am not too sure how many balls I used, maybe 3 200gm balls and half of another. I still have 2 left over so will think of something to use them for eventually. Paul loves this sweater and it suits him too. Sorry about the cropped face but he didnt want his face on here so I compromised and took it halfway, lol! He doesnt really read my blog so I am sure this wont offend him! Now to dig out those UFO's from the black hole, oh I mean knitting basket!

I can't believe you knitted that Sue. It is amazing. It is so neat and has a zip and is so perfect. I have never looked at knitted patterns for males before. It's so great that he loves it. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

And just the day to be wearing it. Up here in Sydney where I live, it's a shade over 12 degrees, windy and wet. Lovely knitting day, actually. The jumper looks really great, so cosy..

I'm just falling all over myself about the zip. They scare the living daylights out of me - so usually I'm feeling pretty safe with the knitty thing. Really nice work - well done!
