The Tale of Trudy Two Jumpers

My mum asked what I would like for Christmas, and what I really needed were winter jumpers, the kind you can just throw on with jeans. 

So I suggested that she knit me Little Woollies Winter Warmer, it's a boyfriend fit, knitted in the chunky Drops Andes, so a quick knit and a very easy pattern. 

This time round, I chose a tonal effect using two of the shades of grey (not 50 !!)

#0519 Dark Grey &

#9015 Grey

For my size you only need 8 balls, which works out approx. £36.00, so a bargain for a wool/alpaca chunky jumper.

 

 It's perfect and I am thrilled to bits.

What I didnt know, was that my mum was already knitting me a jumper as a surprise, so inadvertantly, I ended up with 2 gorgeous knits, how lucky am I?

This one is made with Aran weight Drops Alaska colour

#62 Fog

The pattern is the Imogen Sweater by West Yorkshire Spinners.

I love the colour, it's like a pale blue / grey smoke, the name Fog describes it perfectly. I also love the funnel neck and the cable raglan detail, so flattering.

 Such a yummy scrummy jumper, stylish and contemporary. 

This one took 17 x 50g balls of Alaska @ £1.80 so again a super bargain at £30 quid.

What can I say but Thanks Mum and can you do me another one in the grey/pink??

Happy Knitting everyone.
