A hoot

Hubby’s owl jumper is finished and I think it might be a new favourite.

Owl jumper

This was a very quick knit – I surprised myself. The yarn is (surprise surprise) Novita’s 7 Veljestä and it was knitted with 4mm needles. The gauge is 18 stitches to 10 cm. The pattern is here but unfortunately only in Finnish. (I will update these links if the patterns are translated into English at any time.)

I don’t really have anything else to say. This was such a pain-free and quick knit without any drama or disasters. I basically sat down and started and soon it was finished. The size is very good, too. I’m going to knit an owl jumper for me, too, but it will be more colourful. Perhaps all the different images in a different colour. The pattern for the ladies’ version is a tunic but I might do a normal length jumper instead. But not yet.

Anyway, this owl was well received, and that’s the main thing!

Happy knitting!

Petrol blue

Yay, a finished jumper! This is for my hubby. I knitted this fairly quickly until the sleeves, and for some reason no matter how I knitted, the sleeves didn’t seem to get any longer. It’s one of those things, I guess. Eventually I made it. I finished the jumper off with metal buttons.

This pattern is by Novita (again) but the funny thing is that it’s a teen pattern. And I made size 160cm. I usually make him men’s S. It’s a good fit and he likes it, so I’m happy. The yarn is also by Novita, called Wool (probably because it’s 100% wool). The colour is lovely petrol and the good news is that I have enough of it left to make another jumper – perhaps for me. As far as jumpers go, I usually knit one for him, two for me. That’s about right, yes?

Happy knitting!
