For me...

Believe it or not but it's been a while since I've made something for me without a pattern and basically tailored to exactly what I want.

I'm working on a tunic style jumper to wear over a long sleeved T-shirt (mainly as I don't think I have enough yarn for sleeves too), it's a look I love and I really couldn't find what I wanted 'out there'. It will have an aran feel to it but in a DK weight yarn and I'm enjoying testing my ideas as I go without a definite plan.

The picture below is almost past all the waist shaping and I'm thinking of adding pockets with a narrower cable section on the front too.

I think cap sleeves with the same narrower cable along the top will also happen but they may not when I get there. The last couple of decisions will be the neck, I think fairly low but could have a chunky ribbed roll neck or a hint of ribbing to show the layered look off a bit better.

Even better, this is using some yarn I had stashed in 2011!

I'll see what you think when it's done but I've been noting my pattern as I go to share x
