Next project started

Yesterday I knitted a tension swatch for the sweater in that blue and beige yarn, I found the punchcard in a book some where and punched it out a while ago probably when I still had the knitmater 700, it was only yesterday I found it in my punchcard stash and decided to use it as I thought it would be a great Christmas sweater as the pattern it's self looks slightly Icelandic in my opinion. I was going to use knitware to knit this jumper but then went against that decision and used the knit radar instead. I have knitted the back so far, what do you think? I hope it doesn't appear too vintage looking or something an old man would ware but I like it anyway, lol.

Talk to you later

  3. I like it, so what if it looks a bit 60s? As long as you like it that's all that matters. I think it's very Wintery - if you know what I mean.

  4. Thanks Susan, I guss you are right and I know what you mean it does look very wintery, it is definitely warm with all those floats on the wrong side.

  5. It looks great Alex. It's like the odd socks, in this day and age anything goes. The sixties look is back in vogue. I saw some girls with bu-font hairstyles the other day. I wanted to say, 'Hey, do you think you invented that look sweetie?' but I managed to just smile knowingly lol. Look forward to seeing it finished. You work so quickly.
