This is my type of knitting! It’s the Kim Hargreaves Nat jacket which is knitted in Rowan Big Wool on 10mm needles. Because you use such big needles and a very chunky yarn, it knits up really quickly. I bought the wool on 14 September and finished sewing up the jacket on Sunday – after it had lain over the back of my chair for a week waiting for the second sleeve to be sewn in. By my calculations that’s just three and a half weeks to knit – I normally take about six months to knit anything.
In addition, it’s really warm and the wool is beautifully soft against my skin.
Just the jacket I kneed for our forthcoming move to windy Lincolnshire.
P.S. Don’t ask – I don’t know! Husband has already started the new job but it depends on when they can find us suitable accommodation.
