A blocking journey
I finished the knitting on the Travelling Jumper. It doesn't look it in the photo below, but it's HUGE.
As in the circumference of the body piece is 2.8 metres around. There is quite a bit of finishing on this, after blocking all that ribbing to size, it ahs to be seamed and then iCord applied. I can’t wait until it’s dry so I can start finishing it off. This is going to be one cosy, cosy cardigan, perfect for the bitter middle of winter, which we have just hit now. I’m hopping to have the whole thing finished, and reblocked if necessary, so I can wear it on the weekend. A new snugly jumper makes me hate winter just that little bit less.
