Think legwarmers, think Rubix cubes, think perms, think Neighbours, think BATWING JUMPERS. Yes, we are starting 2013 in the 1980s. The soundtrack is ‘Pretty in Pink’ and I’m channeling Madonna circa ‘Desperately seeking Susan’. Why of course my jumper is falling off my shoulder, why would I wear one any other way?. Yes, the EDDIE is finished. I love it. I haven’t stopped wearing it since I finished it. Sure, it looks a little like I am smuggling 2 melons but it’s just so comfy and as I already mentioned (repeatedly, enough already) I ‘heart’ the voluminous sleeve.
Here I am round a mates house who has the most desirable cat ever. Say hello to Edward. Edward is a floofy plumptious slice of cat love. This is a cat that doesn’t know the meaning of ‘too much affection’. Tickle his belly, chin, ear, paw; he really doesn’t mind. The more the better. He’ll take it as often as he can get it. He is a prince among cats. Oh and isn’t the dresser you can just peek behind to die for. My friend has great taste in home decor. It’s a cosy delight.
Here’s is a back view (to show off the jumper not my oddly flat bottom);
This jumper is a breeze. There is a lot of it (seriously, those sleeves are nearly the same size as the front/back pieces) but it’s on 4.5 mm needles so it grows quickly. My only complaint was that I only just had enough wool. Buy an extra ball to be on the safe side. I recommend this as a good first/second jumper. Raglans sew up easily and there is nothing complex. That and it’s fab. Kid classic is a brilliant yarn which I also used for my Billie cardigan. It’s ‘woolly’ but soft if you catch my drift.
