Puffin Sweater - Finished!

'Tis done.

All ends have been sewn in, it's been soaked, rolled in a towel to take out excess moisture and then patted out on my blocking mats with a couple of strategically-placed pins and left to dry.

I'm really pleased with this sweater.  It fits really well - not too baggy, but with just, perhaps, a smidgeon of negative ease.

A pretty good representation of the colours

Sunny again today (but a bit breezy)

A full-sweater shot!

I wore it to knitting group yesterday morning and it was admired by the lovely ladies there.  But then it go too warm inside the hall where we meet as the sun was shining through the floor-to-ceiling windows and I had to take it off.

I'm now back to knitting socks and a scarf and debating what I'm going to knit as my next sweater.  I have a couple of thoughts, which I'll come back to.


  1. Oh my goodness! This is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. It's so beautiful, Christine. Really well done!

  3. It is so lovely!! I bet that your knitting friends really liked it. xx

  4. Thanks for the nice comments - I've been wearing this sweater practically every time I've gone out this week!

  5. I love the way the colour POPs! And, your knitting is so neat. x

  6. Stunning Christine. Let's hope it get just a bit colder and we can actually wear some of our woollies!

  7. Thanks for the kind words, ladies :)
