And now for my Friday FO :-D
Two weeks ago I ordered some Drops Yarn to try and decided to start my projects off with a pullover for Kay that was knit in Drops Andes. What luscious wool to work with :-) I received my wool on the 6th September and started straight away. It was so delightful to knit something that bulky again, I haven't done that in ages! I knit the jersey on size 8mm and by Wednesday the 12th the body including the hood was done. By Friday the sleeves were finished (I knit them individually and in the round, which is new for me, I usually knit both at the same time and then flat) and I sewed them in first thing Saturday morning. So all in all the actual work on this Pullover was roughly 8 days - how is that for amazing! Well, I will let you be the judge of that, I am quite impressed with the progress though! 
Needless to say I have decided I need more of these kind of knits and will be starting some new projects with Andes wool in the near future!
I wish you all a fabulous weekend.

    1. Hi Leah,
      Kay said it is really nice and warm. The last couple of days she has worn it out on her way to school (it is more than a little chilly in the early mornings already) and said she was more than warm enough.
      Thanks for popping by.

    1. Hi Carmela,
      Aren't they great, Kay said I can use the same wool but definitely not the same pattern :-(, will have to find something for myself!
      Thanks for your visit.
