I love oddball jumpers. And, if I may say so, this is a particularly fine example :lol:

Fantastical! You are very clever! It's just the kind ofjumper I'd love to knit - did you use a pattern?

thanks all

no no pattern - I just worked at getting contrasting colours together and tried not to repeat the combination that had already happened.

I'm thinking of starting another one.. after all i was making this one for years, so it will be worn out before the next is ready (mind you I am knitting more now)

It's nice to see bits of yarn from other projects.. 'ah those plum gloves i made.... ah that little baby jacket for my neice....' etc

The only thing i did do was to stick to the same type of yarn all the way through - DK in this case.
