No more exam marking, I've finished work for the summer, no obligations on my time except what I choose to do - lovely, just lovely. We've had three days of dry weather in Northern Ireland and so DH and I headed to the North Coast for a change of scene to stay with my parents for a few days in their holiday home. Teenage son was already there staying with his own friends. The Giant's Causeway has cliff walk above it - right at the top, along the edge and I've never walked it, so this was a priority activity over the weekend.

That's me supposed to be standing on his shoulders - Standing on the shoulders of giants - didn't quite work so let me tell you about my cross-over jumper instead. Easy-peasy cutting and sewing, made in about 2 hours max.
Another pattern from the German stable and is slightly avant garde - if you can have 'slightly'? A giant jumper with a twist.
The fabric is a fine, bright pink knitted rib - not sure of the fibre content - but you need need something that has drape and no 'wrong' side as the twist at the front turns the fabric inside out.
The front pulls the side seams forwards, hence the shape below.
|Plenty of room to grow|
Look, we do have blue skies in Northern Ireland.
