Door 3 – same procedure as every year

I have already finished this years woolen jumpers for my children a couple of weeks ago but hadn’t had a chance to put them up here.

I have used the Little Hoodlum pattern like last year but in the most simple version without hoods or pockets as I had realised that even though it looks really cute it is not practical under a wintery top layer.

IMG_1303I have used Adriafil Knitcol, 100% merino DK but I found it thinner than expected. So I had to knit bigger sizes but never mind. It is also a bit itchy, not really what I expect from pure merino. Not sure if I am going to use it again, definitely not for anything I would have to wear directly on my skin.

But the pattern that the yarn creates once knitted up is really beautiful, big effect for just plain knitting in the round and without much weaving in 🙂

My daughter is really pleased with hers, my son hasn’t even tried his one yet. Just never ever suggest anything to a grumpy two year old, he will say no and then not even forget about it 🙂
