Yarn Along- December 2020

Hard to believe that this is the last Yarn Along for 2020, but there we are.

I have completed the front of the wonderful jumper of many colours for my grandson.

And it is on with the back now. I just love this yarn so much- bright and cheerful and sure to lift the spirits in the dark nights of Winter. The book is very good indeed- an epic tale of a poor Korean family living in Japan during the 20th Century- I’m very grateful to everyone who recommended it to me.

I realise you can’t see how far I have progressed on the back of the jumper in this picture, so here is another.

It grows much faster without the cables, but the stripes are impossible to fully match to the front- I shall do my best with the back and the sleeves.

Once again joining with Yarn Along where you can find lots of yarning- https://www.gsheller.com/2020/12/yarn-along-december-2.html

  1. It looks simply fantastic, honestly. Super happy and bright! 🙂

  2. This is such a fun project watch! He is going to love it.

  3. You probably already know this but just in case you don’t, it is being made into a film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6EbDboWSd8

  4. That jumper will cheer everyone up now and in photos to look back on in years to come – a family tradition!
    I really like the sound of that book, it has tempted me.
    Did you see any of these programmes Cathy? I loved them!

  5. That jumper is just wonderful! So bright and cheery 🙂

  6. The perfect antidote to grey winter days… He’ll be like a little mobile rainbow!

  7. That jumper is so cheerful! I ended up like Pachinko but it took me awhile to get going on it. It made me very curious about life in Korea and Japan.

    • I find the book very interesting, I’d no idea of the history of Korea and how it came to be divided- you learn this through the experience of the characters, very subtly done.

  8. ❤️❤️❤️ perfect for the dark days of January as I call them! Knitting this makes you smile every time, doesn’t it!

  9. That jumper is so much fun. I think your grandson will love it!! And I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying Pachinko… I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on the list.

    • The book is good- I am ashamed that I knew so little about Korea or Japan. I think my grandson will like this jumper, it has a V neck and his favourite lime green colour.
