Frosty the Snowman/Sweater!
September 25, 2006
Not really a snow man!
Here as promised (I'm still jet-lagged but really want to show Frosty off) are the proper big photos of Frosty, my first pattern to be published in a REAL BOOK. !!
Firstly here's the book:
And here's the first version of the jumper:
And the second (not modelled by me as it's in a larger size - I'm going to give it to my mum and if we're lucky I might be able to persuade her to show it off!):
And here's the pattern page - that's MY name!
Now why not click here and have a proper look at it! I got the 2 sweaters back with my free copy of the book when I got back from my holiday. It's one of my favourite sweaters ever, it's amazingly light and I'm a stripe fan!
Next time: My holiday and the yarn purchases that came with it (clue - Artfibers!).

Well done Jen - I'm loking forward to seeing the book and even more to wearing the sweater. Sorry I won't look as good as the model!

I wish you could've modelled the sweater in the book too - you look so happy :o)
Is it OK for me to post some of your photos on my blog? I want to show off too :o)
Love the comment from your mum and can't wait to she her modelling the variation!
