Hey everyone, how are the Christmas preparations coming on? Well, I hope. I have managed to get most of my gift shopping done but still have the decorations to put up. Will probably go get our tree this weekend. I was super irresponsible lately but I spied an amazing offer on 2x 400g balls of Sirdar Yo-Yo yarn in Caramel on Ebay and I couldn't resist getting them. This reminded me that I have been meaning to post some pictures of my purple yo-yo yarn jumper that were taken recently. The original post I made on this project can be found here, and I think we can all agree the pictures are terrible.
So here I am wearing my super comfie Sirdar yarn jumper. My OH's father very kindly did the photos of this for me and I am delighted with how they came out. I think it really shows off the gradient of colour on this piece.
This is made from pattern 9082. I decided to make the sleeves longer than called for in the pattern as I have fairly long arms and I don't like jumpers that are slightly too short in the sleeves. In fact I added on enough that they come down over my hands, which I adore.
It is a real shame that Sirdar have discontinued this line because it was really fun to knit. This jumper was done using a single 400g ball so the colour changes flow really nicely. I have a couple more yo-yo patterns and a few balls of the yarn in a different colourways. I am definitely looking forward to knitting them up. I have a Sirdar Blur cardigan that is waiting to be blocked and a Blur jumper on the needles so once those are done I think I will tuck into one of the yo-yo patterns.
I would love to hear what you all think of the jumper, let me know in the comments below. I am working away on a surprise cross stitch piece at the moment, so hopefully I can share that soon. It is Christmas themed but needs to be given to the recipient before the big day, keep an eye out for that.
