Reindeer Sweater Ta Da!

Having started this in January 2016, knitted half way up the back then left it untouched until sometime this summer, I’m pleased to finally tell you, I finished LH’s Christmas Sweater just in time for our village Christmas meal.

Here he is, very excited to finally be wearing it…

Unfortunately it is a little on the big side, which means:

a) He’s shrunk since I started knitting it, or

b) My tension got much looser over the two years between starting and finishing, or

C) I didn’t measure properly, or

d) I took my measurements for a sweater that’s too big for him.

I’ll leave you to decide.

  1. Hurrah! You must be thrilled to have that off the needles and onto him. πŸ™‚ As for the fit – let’s go with the one that is good for everyone. You measured perfectly, knit exactly to gauge and he lost weight. πŸ™‚

  3. Looks great! Sorry I am a bit late commenting – still feels like Christmas in my house, decorations still up, leftovers still around and about (drowning in chocolate!) I guess the extra girth of the jumper might come in handy over the season!
