Knitting a jumper(sweater). Designing as I go. (Top-Down)

Hello everyone πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ and good morning Sunday😊

Today my family and I were going to go to the beach. But the weather is rainy, windy and overcast. So we changed our mind and spending the day relaxing at home. So I have time to post something about my jumper.

Sometime last week I went to Spotlight (craft store). I guess it might be similar to Micheal or Joann stores in America. I wouldn’t have a clue because I’ve never been there, only heard about it. Anyway, I went to Spotlight last week..  lol yeah I know! I have an addiction / obsession problem with Spotlight. πŸ˜€ But only the craft sections especially the yarn aisle; “Life’s to short let’s buy more yarn”, why not? hahaha

My first knitted Sweater

Right now I’m so seriously happy and proud. Why? Because I just made my very first knitted sweater for my son. I’ve never thought that I would attempt to even make one. I always thought it’s too complicated to make, better to buy.

Two days ago I went to the shop and saw a similar to this sweater. I was about to buy it but my hubby said to me ” you can make it yourself ”  then I looked at him and smiled a little and said ” yes I think I will do it myself, I won’t pay $90 for a machine made sweater! 😁 Let’s go buy yarn ” Lol
