The main body piece of my new knitted jumper is complete. The ends have been woven in and tidied up and it now awaits sleeves and a neckline adding, to be finished off with a few cute little buttons which I hope to treat myself to this weekend. I had originally photographed the work in progress folded as above as it looks so unfinished without the addition of sleeves and finishing of a neat neckline, but today I have re-photographed the piece hung up and displayed in its current form.
I would not consider this ready to wear in its current state as it is still awaiting quite a lot of work, but whilst I was in Waterstones today I was browsing the knitting books whilst Mr Awesome perused the nerd section of the bookstore, and I spotted a familiar looking garment on the front of one of the books.
The stitch pattern is almost identical as the one that I have chosen for my sweater, and apart from the width of the shoulder pieces it is practically the same as the unfinished garment that I am working on. I had a nosey through the book to have a look at a few further pictures of the knitwear on the cover and there appears to be no discernible Â finishing to the neckline or armhole edges. It looks entirely like my own jumper does at the moment. I still wait sleeves on my own piece, but it was amusing to spot something that looked so like my work in progress on a book cover.
