Hour glass sweater.


I finished this today, intending to give it to my sister as a christmas gift, but I'm not thrilled with it tbh...... Maybe it will look better after blocking and on a real person. It looks like a sack on me cos its too big, but my sister is bigger, so should fit her ok.......Maybe I should get her to try it on and see if she likes it??
Anyway, the yarn is Kilcarra donegal tweed, and the pattern is from last minute knitted gifts.
I just need to crack on with the second monkey sock now.......
I'm feeling much better, thanks for all your well wishes! Back to work on Monday for four night shifts:-( No chance to knit either, and I hate nights! I don't sleep for very long through the day, so end up absolutely exhausted:-(

I'm not sure if I'm pleased your better 'cos your better... or sorry your better 'cos you have to do the night shifts???? I think the jumper will be fine on a real person.

Your recent FO's are great, as ever. I'm sure the HG sweater will look lovely on your sister.

It's a lovely sweater, and will suit your sister very well I think.

I am working the night shift on Monday and Tuesday nights next week, how about virtual tea and toast at 3:00 am?

Glad to hear you are feeling better but boo hiss to nights. I love the jumper and am sure it will look great when on someone the right size.

The jumper is such a lovely colour - I'm sure it will look great on the right size person as it's a great pattern.

I hope the nights go fast. I used to hate nights as I felt so grotty all the time. Hourglass is nice. I hope it fits your sister OK.

Oh dear, I'm getting worried now, re: the sizing of the Hourglass, especially since we're using the same yarn. Bah. I'm not sure whether to knit on to the armholes, or to rip now and knit a smaller size. Decisions, decisions. It looks lovely, btw, a beautiful colour. I'm sure your sis will love it!
