The Deep Dark Wood
I've just finished another project. The pattern is Idlewood, by Cecily Glowik MacDonald. I used Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper weight, holding it double. It's my new favourite. I love the yarn, I love the pattern, it feels cosy and warm and will be perfect for windy winter walks by the sea! The yarn is 100% Shetland, which has to be my favourite breed of sheep - it has plenty of crunchy texture, without compromising on softness. Love, love, love it! I made the jumper a bit shorter, omitted the pockets (which I liked, but were a bit of a no-no for my body shape) and adapted the number of raglan increases for my bust size.
