Pattern:Rowan Mag 30, SNUG by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Rowan Polar(60%wool 30%alpaca 10%acrylic)
Needles: 8mm & 7mm
Amount: 6 x 100g x 100m
Finished size: 32"
In the meantime I've casted on another jumper with the Noro wool/silk that's been calling out to me each time I so much as peep at my stash cupboard! The subtle blending of colours which then stretches into rich hues before another clever blend never ceases to amaze and delight as I knit away into the night. (that explains why I need a little snooze when I get home from work recently)
I could have not bothered to match the front and back, but being the neurotic that I am, they HAD to be symmetrical, so that is another ongoing challenge and I'm sure the sleeves ain't going to be easy. Life's more interesting this way isn't it?

Here's Landscape from Knitpicks, starting off as mine but claimed by DD who didn't like the stripey skein of wool at first.
Polar - a Winter jumper for DD,...just the neck to be cast off, sides seamed and sleeves attached.
Finally on its last leg, 2nd sleeve almost done and I'll have to decide how I want the raglan top to look when the pieces unite.
If a love-hate relationship is possible to have with a WIP, this is it! big time.
