I took this picture of my jumper in progress, last month, in amongst the primroses - the bluebells are out now!
It's a jumper from the Alice Starmore fishing sweaters book I bought from Ebay. It's for my son - I let him choose the pattern, yarn colour etc. I'm knitting it in Sirdar Denim Sport Aran, which is 60% Acrylic, 25% Cotton and 15% wool - very soft and machine washable. Think I'm going to have quite a bit over though - obviously greater yardage than the recommended (Rowan) yarn in the original pattern - a lot cheaper too!
I'm close to finishing the back to match the front - Only the sleeves and neck to do. Think I'm going to have to block the bottom hem carefully as it has a tendency to curl up already.
I've ordered the felt slippers kit from Cabin Fever - couldn't resist! I've been hankering after them for a while - they're so cool - and i've not done any felting since the bag I knitted Seth's (now ex) girlfriend.

I love the sweater so far, the bottom band is gorgeous. I look forward to seeing it finished.

I love this pattern - I've been drooling over it for a while. Your colour choices are great. As for the post below - ooowwwwwwww!!! Hope you continue to make a good recovery!
