Short sleeve jumper

I found a super big ball of yarn in one of my favourite colours last year. I was inspired by Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl, she is a brunette like me and always wears shades of olive green and yellows like this. I have a pattern from a book called Not Your Mama's Knitting: The Cool and Creative Way to Pick Up Sticks By Heather Dixon which is for a short sleeve jumper, the kind you would wear a simple long sleeve t-shirt under. It has the cutest little fair isle designs which you can incorporate into it.

I previously knitted a pink one with rabbits, whales, bows and hearts on it. The yarn I used was a baby soft type, which didn't really suit the project and the colours weren't quite vibrant enough to show off the patterns, but I love it all the same.

So here is the work in progress, it has been on the sticks since last year...eek! But I am going to push myself to have it finished on time for the lovely spring weather that I know is on its' way ;p
