Levelling up in the knitting world!

The first grown up piece of knitting!

The first grown up piece of knitting!

This lovely purple jumper type thing is the first piece of knitting that I’ve done that hasn’t been a) a small accessory such as a hat or b) for a baby!

Go me! It’s probably not that complicated as it was only a one star difficulty in the Rowan pattern book, but still, go me. It even has a nice gold thread running through it for added sparkle!

The pattern book has some beaut stuff in it, but the wool has been discontinued 😦 A bugger, because if I want to make anything else from it I’m going to have to work out and try to understand that wool substitution thing – which frankly still seems like a black art! It’s Rowan Lux wool, if anyone has any ideas 🙂
