I never got around to blogging this particular jumper. There's been quiet a lot going on over the past few weeks, and somehow it got sucked into the general morass.
Which is a shame, because I'm rather proud of it. Knitted straight from a pattern in Woman's Weekly of 28 February 1942 in Jaeger Matchmaker 4-ply, 5 balls. So very exactly 5 balls, that anyone with a nervous disposition would have been far better off with 6. I've never had to sort through my trimmed-off ends before to find those long enough to sew just another couple of inches.
I'm rather relieved to have finished it in time to wear tomorrow - Jane Waller is talking about knitting from vintage patterns, and I wanted to show it off (shallow little creature that I am). So if you're there, and you spot this particular shade of blue from across a crowded room, feel free to introduce yourself. Or run and hide.
