Tour de France jumper finished, another project needed for the remainder of the Tour.


I obviously chose a project that was not of an appropriate length for the Tour de France as I have completed it and we are only up to Stage 14 when I write this post.

The TourThe jumper was a joy to knit.  I had forgotten how much I enjoy colour work when knitting.

I have now started a small project for the time being.

close upIt wont take long to knit as it is thick wool and big needles, in fact I will probably finish it on the next stage.

      The pattern is fairly easy. I don’t enjoy sewing up seams though, hopefully I will manage it ok.

    I have no idea how you knit so fast …….. of course I only knit at night, so I’d get more done if I did it during the day! Lovely lovely things.

      The Tour de France broadcast starts at 10 pm and finishes about 1.30 or 2.00am. so that is a large chunk of knitting time each night. The Tour lasts three weeks.
