FO Friday – Arwen jumper

Happy Friday everyone!

I have finished it! My first jumper of the year, and I’m so so in love with it! I’ve started the Arwen jumper (designed by Isabell Kraemer) at the end of April and I’m so pleased that I have finished it finally as the weather really is getting cool now. I have to say I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to wear it this year, as I thought my bump wouldn’t fit, but the loose fit of the jumper actually makes it perfectly fine to fit my expanding belly.

I really loved working on it, I think that the lace detail at the top is beautiful and I’m very happy with the softness of the yarn I used (called Fiddlesticks superb 4). It’s a machine washable acrylic too so it should make washing the jumper easy (which is great because the colour really is quite pale).

That was my achievement of the week, I hope you all had a great creative time and that you have a fabulous weekend (I know I’m looking forward to my last spinning class!)

WIP Wednesday – Arwen jumper

Happy Wednesday everyone!

As promised here is a progress shot of the newest project on my needles, my first jumper of the year! I’m super excited about this jumper, I’ve had my eyes on this design since it came out last year and I’m happy I’ve finally started it 🙂

The name of the pattern is Arwen by Isabell Kraemer and I think it’s just so beautiful. I’ve chosen the yarn for it with my family over at Christmas and it’s super soft so I can’t wait to be able to wear it.

This is the second time I make a jumper from Isabell Kraemer and I really like her patterns. it’s a top down jumper and as you can see I’ve hit the pattern already. I’ll try to share progress update when I separate into the main body and sleeves, hopefully before the end of the month!

Do you have a new project you’re excited about too?
