Aunty's Chunky Jacket




I finished this last night while watching the X-factor final (I'm soooo glad that Leona won btw!). It's for my aunty's birthday next Friday, along with a scarf and some socks.

I bought this kit from the Cardiff knitting and stitching show (back in October, I think). It was knit with four strands of yarn on 15 mm needles.

Here is the finished item (modelled by me) and also a WIP photo - the colour is more like the WIP photo IRL.
I hated using the 15mm needles - it was like knitting with broom handles. I was also knitting some socks at the time on 2.5 mm needles and going from small to extra-large was really odd. Give me 2.5 mm's any day!

PS, I also meant to say, we were glad Leona won too. DS loves her, even though he's only 3!!! I think the poor boy was smitten ;)
