The cause?........Finally finished my daughters jumper...
Its not that it actually took me a long time to do,its just that I did a million things in between.
I'm really quite happy with how it has turned out...its actually my first proper piece of knitted clothing (other than hats)
It was quite a simple jumper ( Sirdar Click Chunky 8940) and I just put in my own pattern for the skull on it.
The only downside has been that because my daughter was so happy with it.....she now wants a stripy one!
A knitters work is never done :)
