Diamond Jumper

Ooeee – this has been being knitted for an age now (almost a year!)… so much so that the colour of the wool I need to finish it has been discontinued… after much searching of shops and ebay I have finally placed an order in the states so a £3 ball of wool has now become about a £10 one! It’s worth it to finish this though – It will be my first proper finished jumper (for an adult!)

Pattern: Short Sleeved Diamond Stitch Sweater ( Vintage Knits: Sarah Dallas)
Yarn: 5 x Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4 ply Burgundy (sh 727 lot 6L1) and a bit of Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Candy Girl and Marmalade (I think because, guess what, I lost the labels!)
Needles: 2.75 & 3.25mm. I didn’t swatch for this, so goodness knows how it will come out! most likely this is the source of my running-out-of-wool frustration too…
