Finished Object: Jumper for my Boy

As most of you will know, I love knitting for friends, family and myself. But most of all, I absolutely LOVE knitting for my two boys. It makes me so happy that even though we now live in Australia I still get to knit for both of them! Just today my eldest has asked me to make him another jumper for the Australian Winter. Now that is the best praise and thanks I could ever ask for! So, I want to show you a jumper I made for him in 2014.

I loved making this for my son. It’s such a simple, but straightforward pattern. From the guys at Drops Design. I used very similar colourways of DROPS Fabel yarn, so the pattern isn’t necessarily as obvious as it could have been with more contrasting colours. But I still love it!

It’s a lovely jumper for in between seasons, as it’s light enough to just put on over a T-Shirt. I was sure that my youngest had worn it many times, but I only managed to find one picture of him wearing it…check it out at the end of this post. However, would you look at my sweet boy, this makes me beyond happy!
