On The Desk – Fun Bright Jumper

Another project brought out of hibernation this week. I’ve been saying I’ll finish this for too long; but this fun bright jumper is going to be SO worth it! I’m really inspired to get this one done!

On the desk...

To banish this wintery grey and gloom, I’m making a point at the moment, to work on a bit of colourful fun!

Summer Knit (1)

I fell in love with the look of this yarn; which I found in Poundland of all places. At first I tried to talk myself out of it, assuming the quality would be awful…Of course a couple of weeks later; I gave in, and picked up three 50g balls for £2 (3 for 2). Deciding to make a loose knit; fairly lightweight jumper, because I’ve seen a few around; and I thought the bright colours of this yarn were too nice to ignore.

At this point I’ve done one side of my fun bright jumper, which has been incredibly quick and easy to knit, as I’m using 9mm needles. I’m still working on it though, and unlike my other jumper I may actually finish it in the near future!

More knitting inspiration? I made a monochrome chunky knit scarf here.
One finished side of fun bright knit jumper, the colours in the variegated yarn are hot pink, orange, yellow, blue and purple.

It’s actually really nice, I balled the yarn to check for any issues with it, and the first ball was completely fine, and the second (which I’ve by now balled too, had one part knotting two ends together, but it’s fine for what I’m making. Quality wise it’s not bad at all; and isn’t going too fluffy or any other issues; considering the price; I am pretty pleasantly surprised!

I ended up using just over one ball for the side; and so, I assume I’ve got enough with the three balls I have; though I have picked up a couple more just in case! And it’s gorgeous, so if I have yarn left, I’m sure I can think of some way to use it!

Would you buy this yarn? What would you use it for? Leave a comment with any ideas below, or get in touch with me on Twitter.
