I was in Fabric Vision a couple of weeks ago buying a zip or some such trivia when a stand of gorgeous wool blend sweater knit beckoned me over. It was the $15.95 per metre sign that lured me in. I had visions of a lovely winter wrap, but of course, I didn't actually end up using my fabric for a wrap.
Once I had it home and washed it, I realised I wouldn't really wear a wrap very often so I changed tack at my daughter's suggestion and dug through my patterns to find my tnt McCall's 6992. Courteney also suggested a high low hem. This is version five of this pattern so I was quite happy to mix it up a bit!
Although I do knit, my knitting is quite slow so the occasional sewn jumper certainly doesn't go astray! This was an extremely quick and satisfying project despite hand sewing the hem.
I wore it to watch my oldest son play rugby on Saturday in a bitterly cold wind and am happy to report, not only is it cozy to wear, with all of those colours, it is cheerful as well!
