Purple goodness turns Thermal


IVE FINISHED!!! Okay so I need to go and buy some buttons and sew them on but Ive finished me knitting! Its so squishy and comfortable to wear and warm! :)
It took longer then I wanted to get this finished but small needles and life getting in the way does that sometimes huh?
The pattern was Thermal from and I used Brown Sheep Nature Spun Fingering weight yarn bought from in Plum Line. The both together as you can see made a lovely sweater. Would I use the yarn again? YEP! Would I make the pattern again? Yep! Would I do the pattern in the same colour? No! Only becauses I dont fancy the same looking sweater. hehe.. But I would make it in another colour they have some very pretty colours to choose from.

Oh and Ive joined Twitter! No I didnt join up becausee of YarnHarlot (though she didnt help!) Ive been following a couple of people after watching Jonathon Ross the night Steven Fry was on it and then was following those two and a couple others and for ease of following the twitters I joined and before I knew it I was twittering along.... So join and follow too!! Remember to let me know though so I can follow you too!! :)

Hold on to your snow shoes!

My Thermal is coming along nicely. Ive got the main body finished now and am half way finished with the second arm, so I just need to finish that and do the collar and that will be finished!! But you know how when your knitting something and you just want it finished so that you can wear it, but by wanting that done the knitting seems to take FOREVER?!? Well thats the stage I am at right now! It doesnt help that weve got a nice dumping of snow (again 2nd time this week woo hoo!) so its like the perfect weather to wear it and IM NOT FINISHED!!!! So Im knitting on it but only a couple of rows at a time because I am mad at the sweater. Now isnt that stupid? Whats that poor sweater ever done to me? Oh yeah not been knitted quick enough but isnt that more my fault then its?!? Hmmm the crazy thinking of a crazed knitter me thinks!
Anyways instead of moaning that its not finshed maybe I should actually go knit on it and try to finishe it huh? According to the weather people we are due to get more snow the rest of the week/weekend! Im looking forward to it if I could just finished this sweater!
By the way I am NOT moaning about the pattern because I love it is easy to follow simple to knit in front of the telly Im just moaning that I am so friggin behing with it for the snow we are getting! i bet when I finish (hopefully in the next couple of days) we get some freak heat wave come through and it starts to feel like summer! That would be just my luck! heheh..
Off now to try and finish my sleeve! I want to wear this pretty thing!
