Ladies and Gentlemen...

I present to you...

The Jo Sharp's Contemporary Knitting Fishermans Rib Jumper aka the Monster Jumper


Just in time for fathers day (actually I finished it this morning before DH got up, so technically speaking finished ON fathers day). I tell ya I am SO PLEASED it is done and more importantly it FITS!! And we had a cold rainy day today, perfect for it's first outing! When I can convince DH to appear in the blog I'll get a picture of it on him.

How nice is it to have a FO! In fact I'm in a bit of a finishing mood, so I might even sew up this (second picture in next to bloke in green jumper) little top I knitted ages ago that's been sitting around in pieces forever.

So now I have more time to work on the Clapotis, which is coming along swimmingly. I've done 4 drop stitches, so 8 to go in the straight section (I'm doing a bit less than the pattern says just in case I don't have enough Noro) (otherwise known as 'gee I hope I have more yarn than is required so I can make something for MYSELF with whats left over...').

(on a totally unrelated note: how bizarre is it that the spell checker on blogger doesn't recognise 'blog' as a word...)

Ha, I finally got that first contemp knitting on Friday ($7.99 thankyou very much) and spied that jumper and thought yeah that'd be alright for my DH. I had not made the connection b/t that pattern and your MJ! Ha, it can stay in the "not to be made" file now LOL. Well done on finishing the MJ. It looks fantastic!

thanks! it really wasn't a hard pattern, it was the yarn subbing and the adding on of rows to accomodate my tall DH that was the hard part! $7.99 is a great price! i just saw it in my newsagent for $19.95
