Hello to all at Men Who Knit.
Firstly I'll just tell you that this is my first blog so I'll apologise now if I begin to waffle. Then I would like to congratulate my fellow men who knit for being part of such a fab website and enstilling a sense of community to those that thought they were alone!
Anyway, I have finally finished both my major projects; these being a jumper and jacket for myself! I used patterns from the Jaegar Handknits book. The jumper is titled Bowie as is made in Jaegar Merino DK (shade = Granite) and the jacket is titled Jethro and is made in Jaegar Extra Fine Merino DK (shade = Tweed). I am really pleased with the outcome of both projects even though they look good, they feel even better and are extremely warm. The yarn costs alot (in excess of £200 for both items) but I feel was worth this cost this time. It took several months to make them both and only a few hours to put together (by my partner Jason - as I dont do sewing!). I hope you like them and I have more photos of them but not sure how to upload them onto the site, any help would be gratefully received.
