I’m so excited to have finished knitting this jumper! Overall I’m very pleased with how it turned out and I’m looking forward to many happy years of wear.

Picking up and knitting the Henley collar was such a knitmare. Although I was really careful about measuring my gauge and trying to pick up the right number of stitches, I ended up with a few too many so the collar stuck out in a weird way. Fortunately wet-blocking made it look much better.

See? I put safety pins every 2 inches to ensure I picked up an even number of stitches.
Anyway, it worked out! My fancy buttons haven’t arrived yet but I like these yellow ones so much they may stay.
