Zumthor and a Frogged Jumper

 A Zumthor for Chris, just in time for a trip to Albany and some ridiculously cold and stormy weather. I love this pattern, is has such a great shape and the instructions are perfect. I used a skein of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter I bought in New York in the most beautiful blue colour called almanac.

From one fantastic project to a bit of a disaster. I thought my Camilla Babe Jumper for Olive was going ok until I held it up next to her. It was huge. And very short. And was going to need way too many changes and I wasn't even sure that would fix it. So off to the frog pond it went and I'll have to think of something else to make with the beautiful yarn.

Gorgeous blue and that pink is so pretty. At least you can unravel. Fabric mistakes involve cutting and waste.

Lovely hat, shame about the pink one though!?:x
