River's Rainbow Gansey



Well, several months after I finally started it, River's gansey is completed, buttons and all. It's knitted from chain-plied handspun yarn from a roving from HandPaintedYarn, and I think I used about 220g here- and the purple is BFL aran from Jeni at Fyberspates. And I love it. If it isn't the first project from my handspun i've finished, it's certainly one of the first, and the colours, the way it sits together, just work for me. It's an extremely snug jumper for a cuddly little lad.
The pattern is f.pea's Organic Guernsey, which River was wearing in a different incarnation a whole year ago, and I love this version as much as I did that one. I used the larger measurements, and it knits at a more generous gauge, and so it fits the boy pretty well.

  3. Lovely! You must be so pleased, your handspun looks great. If only they could wear these lovelies for longer...

I hear voices in my head, they talk to me, they talk to me, they understand. Save me from the voices and leave a comment already, huh?
