Following the case of the already-finished wristwarmers, the other being-worn-and-no-longer-on-the-needles project is this jumper for Stashlet.
Made as one of my make-it-up-as-I-go-along quickies because the Drops tank top is in 4 ply and was is still taking for ever, and knitted in the Schoeller+Stahl Big Ball yarn which you might remember I bought in Germany a couple of years ago.
Half way through I got a bit worried that, once finished, it might look like it had been knitted from dog hair but I think it turned out alright.
The yarn is pretty fluffy so I suspect that it will get a bit matted with a lot of washing but it's been through the machine once already and came out looking a lot better than I had thought it would. It is very light and very warm, and knits up to the same guage (at least with me) as Rowan Polar so I've cast on a jumper for myself as well.
Stashlet doesn't seem to find it itchy, which is good. He sometimes wears it with a pair of narrow cords and looks like a total beatnik.
The plan was to make the jumper long enough to allow for some bean-shooting on Stashlet's behalf, and with sleeves that could initially be worn with cuffs turned back and then with no cuffs as he grew. However, as usual, and despite making the jumper loads longer than any tops Stashlet is currently wearing, it turned out just right for now (ie. no extra length for growing), but not long enough to get another year's wear. Ah well, I'll just have to knit another...
