She's got high hopes...

... shes got high hopes, shes got high, apple pie, in the sky hopes!

Yes, that's right! I've got high hopes ... of the Thermal jumper.

I was merrily knitting away and quite enjoying myself, the waffle stitch is just enough to keep me interested and I've achieved, ooh, it must five whole inches (including the ribbing) in the last (nearly a) week, and then today I looked at my progress and thought, hmm this looks small, so I decided I needed to check out my suspicions.

I took the thing off the needle and put it on spare yarn so that I could try it on round my squishy belly and joy of joys it fits without trouble. Woo hoo! It's all back on the needle again now - I shall continue.

This is why I've got high hopes, this may well be the first true jumper I complete for myself - Boogie doesn't count because it's got no sleeves (and I like a challenge now and again) ;-)
