Did I see somewhere on KAS recently that larger jumpers are needed? I found a pattern in a Feed the Children booklet for school uniform jumpers (so children are ABLE to attend school). I've started…Continue

"Oh it sounds lovely, much better than 10hours in a minibus driving over potholes and broken road to Kiev (nothing to do with the conflict, just total lack of maintenance). I kept wondering how it was all going. I'm so glad you all enjoyed it."

If you "friend" me I will send you the pattern. It is the Plain Jane pattern that will be included in the new KASPattern book.....nearing completion !!
Thanks for your lovely comments - glad you like the chunky jumper, and yes, the Samaritans Purse hat is a real favourite of mine - quick and easy to do, whilst being very warm and stretchy - perfect! as for the clean and tidy house, well, errrmmm, I am quite an organised/methodical person! plus after a day at work I need to come back to 'tidy' to unravel my head - if you know what I mean!!
Chunky%20Jumper.doc here is the chunky jumper pattern - just in case you fancy having a go!! Kathyxx
