Doggies are sorted. Two new jumpers. I think I have perfected the construction. Bottom up, no swatching necessary. The neck short-rows gave me a bit of a headache (I've knitted a huge heel instead of a neck at first). But it turns out quite radical decreasing down the middle of the front-neck solved the problem.
Aren't they handsome?
Lola's jumper is handspun HF Corriedale, quite thickly spun. I had 190g of fibre and spinning got done in just a few hours. The knitting itself, mere 4 hours, done in two evenings. Yay for bulky!
Floyd's jumper is Donegal tweed, pretty and manly for my boy.
It is little bit looser than I wanted it to, but I'm sure he'll felt and shrink it in no time.
(Floyd's been rolling on a white wool rug that sheds. But isn't it nice? Like a giant stockinette fabric!)
The pics are taken in the new studio.
Picture tour of our new and awesome studio to come soon! We are still missing few bits here, like a sofa.
