Today I'd like to share another FO with you, this time a knitted one. After finishing my Celebrations Jumper at the begining of the month and finding it was a little too big for it's recipient I promised him I'd make him another jumper that was a perfect fit. And it would have buttons! This is the result :-)
Despite the pictures the sleeves do actually fit fine and I know from previous experience this yarn stretches out the more it's worn so I expect in a few weeks time the sleeves will be too big lol. Still, if it means he gets to wear the jumper for longer then that's no bad thing :-)
He chose an...eclectic... combination of buttons. I suggested having them all the same but he was certain he wanted a repeating pattern like he'd been learning about at school. They make me smile and he adores them which is what matters most :-)
Quick view of the back.
Here's some notes if you want to make your own version:

Yarn: Ice Magic Yarns
Buttons: Berry Nice Crafts (which currently has a sale on until the end of March)
I'm going to spend today working on a new pair of socks. I finished my MKAL socks yesterday and immediately cast on for a pair of toe up socks for my husband. I might also do a bit of crochet as I've got an idea in my mind I want to try to find a pattern for.
Thanks for visiting my blog. More crafty posts at FO Friday, Creative Friday and Fiber Arts Friday. Have a good weekend everyone :-)
