Finished Lacy Jumper!

Apologies if I’ve ignored anyone this last week. My rather scattergun approach to blogging has been due to me being away from home since Saturday, when I delivered a talk at the wonderful Winchester Writer’s Festival, caught up with lot of good friends and had the lovely surprise of meeting – for the first time – a lovely client I coached by telephone eleven years ago. I also managed to pick up a copy of The Fintastic Fish-Sitter written by my brilliant friend Mo O’Hara, which shouldn’t be available until the beginning of July.

If you haven’t seen the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series by Mo, check it out. It’s brilliant! Think Shaun of the Dead meets Finding Nemo. Most of the series is 7+ but The Fintastic Fish-Sitter is a picture book.

Lovely husband picked me up on Sunday Morning and we headed off to spend Father’s Day with Lovely Littlest Daughter in the Big Smoke. We then escaped the city for a short break near Ross on Wye at Glewstone Court Hotel.

A fair amount of knitting took place on the train to Winchester and in the car. However, what I was  itching to do was finish sewing up the lacy jumper that I’d started as part of my 4 x 4 challenge and had finished knitting Friday night. I finally managed to do that when we returned Monday afternoon from a 25 mile cycle ride around the Forest of Dean.

As we were in a hotel, I haven’t had chance to block it yet, but I hope a good battering with the iron will sort out the curly neckline…

I’m still loving the colour and the yarn – King Cole Bamboo Cotton – is so soft!

And that’s it for now. I finished!

    1. Thank you. Yes, I am. Although I’ve put on so much weight these last few months, I think it’s me that’s letting the jumper down 😉 You have a fab weekend too x

    1. Thank you. Funny you say that about the scarf, I bought it about six weeks ago on impulse when I decided the top I was wearing was showing too much cleavage – but seems to go with so much I own!

  1. Love it! I’m amazing that you’ve designed it all yourself! It looks so complicated! I never knew that a jumper could be made so quick…. My mums still making my sister mohair grey jumper for her final year at high school – my sister 45 this year!!! Lol 😀

    1. Thank you, although I’ve put on a heap of weight this year, so hoping to be a little skinnier under it eventually 🙂


  2. What a beautiful jumper, Bekki. Worth all the hard work. I just want to say how much I enjoy your blog – like a chat with a friend over a cup of coffee.

  4. What a gorgeous jumper! So pretty and all those lacy stitches! A lovely jumper for a lovely lady!

    The Winchester Writer’s conference is fantabulous, I went a few years ago – it is great to get together with like minded people! Sounds as if you had a wonderful time.

    1. Aw! Thank you. You’re so lovely 🙂 Yes, it’s a lovely friendly conference. I spoke there last year too and went as a delegate many years ago.


  5. Beautiful! And brilliant that you finished it. I would literally be stopping people in the street to say…”I made this. Look!”
    I always feel inspired to do some crafts or make something when I read your blog. Brilliant stuff ☺️

    1. 🙂 Aw! Thank you. such kind comments. I find craft so tangible and grounding when writing can tend to feel intangible and ungrounding, so makes a great balance. Do share anything you’re inspire to make.
