From start to finish this was a superb little project. Deramore's service is good - it's not their fault that yarns are not always available as we are knitting more - and you are kept up to speed with delivery. The yarn was a joy to work with, and as it is chunky the knitting grew quickly. My finesse is limited. I like a simple project which is enough to keep me busy without taxing my abilities. The finished jumper is fantastic. This is about the first chunky jumper which I have knitted and then worn, as it does not make me look six sizes larger! I think that may be down to the fact that someone has finally realised that a ladies back is slightly smaller than her front - or did I just read the pattern incorrectly?
The pattern is great and mostly easy to follow, but there were three misprints, including row 10 of the cable pattern for the jumper. I found this off-putting, although I was able to work out what the mistake was.
I have been asked for feedback 6times after ordering yarn three weeks ago. I may well be delighted with it when I use it but until then these constant requests are extremely annoying
Made this for myself. Pattern is easy to follow and the yarn knits beautiful. So soft. Really happy with this.
