Cleckheaton Vee Neck Sweater/Jumper
Not sure if I mentioned that I was knitting this, but it's finished (thank god) and just in time for the Sutherland Shire Spinners and Weavers 45 birthday party and fashion parade next Tuesday (I'm on the Executive Committee of the group).

This has got to have been the most enjoyable knit I've done to date. I uses three different 8 ply natural yarns (meaning no dyes used). Hope the photos are clear? I have a white t shirt on ... it is a Vee Neck.

Oh, very well done! I love natural yarns and you've used them so well in this sweater. You'll be the hit of the Sutherland Shire Spinners and Weavers 45 birthday party, without a doubt.

thanks for the positive feedback gals ... as I said, I really enjoyed every stitch, despite the whole thing being stocking stitch (stockinette) throughout.
