FO Friday – striped spring shirt

Happy Friday!

I know what you must be thinking, TWO posts in a week? Let’s say that Clark has been sleeping enough this week for me to finally finish my second jumper of the year, the striped spring shirt by PurlSoho! Yay! I’ve modified the pattern slightly by adding larger strips at the bottom of the body and on the sleeves and by doing a 3×3 ribbing on the sleeves cuffs.


Excuse the messy bed and poor lighting, we’ve had a dreadful stormy day. I’m very pleased that I managed to cast this jumper off before Christmas, it is so warm though that it will have to wait a bit later in the year to be worn! I have already plenty of ideas of what I want to make next, I’m thinking using up some stash yarn and possibly making a fade jumper. But first I will try to finish or frog all my current yarny WIPs/UFOs. I will round up all my projects (if I can find them!) and make a stocktake post soon to have a fresh start in the new year.

I hope the last weeks of December are treating you well and that you are excited for Christmas!

      • We did, though it was our first with no kids home. The quiet was welcome after all the visa shenanigans with Girl #2. She headed back to Italy the week before Christmas, so it was chaos the week before she left.

      • Oh dear, that must have been so stressful. My brother had issues with his USA visa last year too, thankfully it also got sorted before he was due to leave France but it was a close one. Glad you had a nice quiet Christmas 🙂
