Well doubters, here she is - My chevron jumper knitted from a 1934 pattern, and you thought it would never happen!
It has to be said that knitting a jumper goes a lot quicker if you don't mess up the pattern on the shoulders - I completely missed the chevrons on the front shoulders, so I stayed up half the night to amend this.
In the original picture, the tie is in a bow, but I really like ties to be tied like ties, so mine is tied like a tie.
After all this work to finish a Summer jumper, it's still raining and I'm even planning my Autumn/Winter wardrobe... Please bring me a proper Summer!
In other news, today would've been George's Birthday, I just wished the sun could've shined for him today, he was a sun worshipper.
Anyway, I'm exhausted after all that knitting, I have another jumper which needs the pattern working out (how did so many patterns get printed without being checked first?!). So I'll wish you a pleasant Summer Solstice and we'll chat soon
