The Husband Jumper


… it needs a better name. The Polar Bear Jumper…? Nah. Although (don’t tell him), he is a bit of a bear, and the older he gets, the more polar he looks πŸ˜‰

The name question stays on the drawing board for now.

What I realised was that this was (shamefully) a WIP for oh-so-very-much-too-long. Inexplicably, I had actually got it to the point where there was only half a sleeve left to knit, put it down, and not picked it back up for about TWO YEARS?!? I mean, I know I’m a bit of a project magpie (ooh, the shiny new yarn! ooh, let’s have a crack at THIS! ooh, I neeeeeed to make THIS, right NOW!) you get the point, but this was pushing prevarication to its very limits.

AndΒ then I never actually shared with you the fact that I had finally finished. One picture on Instagram passed by with barely a nod.

But I DID finish. And it fits him beautifully, and he has actually WORN it this winter. Quite a lot. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is the mark of something he actually likes. πŸ˜‰

So without further ado, or too much of a flourish, here he is, posing beautifully outside my perfectly blue house.


I did write it all down as I designed and knitted it (I’m a make-it-up-as-I-go-along sort of designer. Intuitive rather than mathematical, if that makes sense) but I haven’t written it all up formally yet. It’s rather a job, and I’ve got all my charts to map up etc. I will though, as I’ve had quite a few enquiries about it. Just let me catch my breath πŸ˜‰

Anyway. Another WIP turned to FO and a sigh of relief, a big smile and a large gin.

Hope you like!

  1. Frozen North? Just a suggestion… its absolutely fantastic and I’m sure he’s very grateful especially now the weather seems to have also turned cold on the other side of the North Sea

    1. YES! I love it! Lovely name. I shall re-name it so. πŸ™‚ He does love it, thankfully! And I’m working on that moss green one for before he heads to the woods again next month. Wish me luck! ❀
