Gee it feels good to have finally finished this sweater. When I first tried it on (with pj, dodgy old tshirt and no bra) I didn't like it and was disappointed with the fit, so didn't bother rushing to weave in the ends and block the pocket and the jumper. Then I tried it on with my jeans and love it, there aren't many jumpers I like with jeans to be honest. It's quite a good length, even though I umm and ahh as to whether or not it is too short. here I am wearing it with hipsters, and a long tshirt and it actually covers the top of my very low hipsters so I'm happy with that. I think it will become a favourite :D Andy says it awesome, so that's all I need!!! LOL
Oh, and I wasn't sure about the pocket either until i blocked and whip stitched it on, it sits really flat on this, and I looove it.
