Another jumper being made.....

Here is what yarns I have pulled out of the box. I have started a jumper for grandson Nicholas. I like all the blues together and I have more than enough to get something done...
The scraps of odd yarn
This is what I have done so far. I had made this design for both my daughter and son when they were little. So that was about 25 years ago. I just love the pattern and you can use up small amounts of yarn. It's just getting the right size. When I have measured up Nick and got the length I want I will start on the sleeves. This way you use the colours as you have them. If you run out after one stripe you can just put in another colour on the second repeat round...
