Jaeger Baby Merino 4 Ply, which was a present. I really prefer knitting with wool and I also like using small needles (13 & 11) because of the nice smooth texture you get.
I knew I wanted to make something deliberately old fashioned looking and I picked this pattern called Lily of the Valley. It's not, as you might think, something from the 1950s but a 1970s pattern by Patricia Roberts. Here's the back.
Those bobbles are pretty time-consuming but not as tedious as making the neck band for the front
or setting in the sleeves. Now it's finished I'm quite pleased with it. I should cross post this to Ravelry now that I'm on at last but I'll have to find time first. There's a close up of the pattern detail here.
