Finished it, but could have been sooner

I was hoping to get this jumper finished by monday but at about 10:30 sunday night I had only got the one sleeve set in and two side seams sewn, and as I had college the following morning I didn't want to carry on sewing it up any later so I turned in and thought I will just carry on with it tommorow.

The next day I got home from college at around 5:45 it was because of those busses lol they take ages sometimes but ahh well, when I got home I wanted to carry on with the sewing but I was just to tired so I had my tea/dinner went on my laptop for a bit and then went to bed. It was only last night when I got home from college that I had the energy to finish it and I did I also washed and dried it before taking the picture so here is the sweater anyway and I think it looks so cute.

This is what I have got left on the cone after knitting the sweater, what do you think? do you reckon there will be enough to knit another sweater in a different tuck pattern or something? if i did make another I might do raglan sleeves, actually slip stitch might be nice also, I might use the knitradar again or I might use knitware not sure yet. I would be happy to listen to any ideas you might have.
Talk to you later

  3. This sweater is adorable. I am going to be a copy cat and make my next one using the same tuck stitch pattern. You got it finished so quickly too. Great job Alex.

  5. Alex, I did a swatch in your tuck pattern then ironed it. It flattens right out. Maybe a good idea to tell your people you made it for not to iron it. I am still going to use it as I like it so much but will tell my people just to wash and tumble dry.

  6. yeah, I suppose it depends what yarn you are using to, if it is acrylic it might go all thin and spoil the pattern a little.
