From vests, I did transition to jumpers. I used this clever pattern where the jumper is knitted top-down on circular needles and thus is completely seamless.
Hubby’s jumper was the first cab off the rank. Even though it’s plain, plain, plain, I certainly learned a lot knitting it. And I got the sizing right with him.
My jumper is a lot looser, so I guess I won’t be wearing it to ‘formal’ occasions. That said, it is very comfortable and nice on the skin. Not too bad for some first efforts.
