I did it! I finally finished knitting my first jumper. It is for a small person and has already gone in my Christmas present bag.. I had to do 2 attempts of the front of the jumper after forgetting to change needle size the first time but the second time went much better.
It was much easier to make then anticipated and I was worried about making up because the instructions seemed confusing but it was easy once I broke it down (and asked Google for help!)
I have started a Mohair lace scarf for my mum's birthday. It's already looking good (although a little hairy for my liking). Will put a picture up when it's done.
