The Perfect Christmas Jumper by Susan Crawford

I really wanted to photog The Perfect Christmas Jumper yesterday but it was dark by the time I’d finished seaming it, so we got up early this morning and just after sunrise on a grey, rainy, dreary day we ran across the road from our house to shoot these pictures of my Christmas jumper (I was hoping for frosty, pretty sunrise like we had a couple of days ago, but I was unlucky and I’m too impatient to wait a couple of days to put better pictures up because I’m so proud of this jumper, it was the most complicated I attempted this year, and I am so happy to have finished it!)

Yarn: Wendy Mode 4 ply (just about 5 balls of red (really needed a 6th) and a lot less of white

Modifications: I added 2 inches to the length (don’t like short waisted jumpers), added a couple of inches to the sleeve lengths (I seem to have monkey arms), and changed the chart for the reindeer to one designed by my hubbie :) I think that was all!
