I made the mister a jumper.
This is only the second jumper I've ever knitted for him. Because the first one took twelve years (I kid you not). You can see it here and gaze at how little my children were and how I only had three readers back then. Awwwww, look at Son #3. So wee, like a little elf.
But I digress. Look at his new jumper! The pattern is the cobblestone, by Jared Flood and it was a pleasure to knit. It's green. And, it fits him. Bonus. Happy belated birthday, darling!
And yes, some of you may recognise that it's resting peacefully on my magnificent quilt, made by the gracious and talented Tracey.
Ravelled here if you're interested in the details.
PS. Apparently it's my "birthday" today. The mister was caught by surprise by a soccer colleague who demanded to know why we were not going to a certain [very expensive] club fundraiser tonight and instead of just saying honestly "Look, we would love to support the club but just now we really can't afford it" (I think he was a bit embarrassed to say that, probably) he replied "Um, we can't come, it's my wife's ... um ... birthday!"
And so, I have demanded cake. Well, wouldn't you?
PS. I'll leave the book giveaway open for a few more days.
