Hi Guys,
Here is my latest project and also my last for winter 2006. It has been 37 deg C (close enough to 100 deg F) for the last two days in this part of OZ so knitting will now take a back seat while I get on with some sewing along with more house renovations.

Fantastic - I love it! What a beautiful front design! Did you design this yourself? The neckline and collar are very interesting and I am going to try something similar as I like it a lot. What are the stitches on the sides? Great job!

BTW: We're having a cold southerly blowing right now so could you please send some of that heat across the Tasman?

My knitting is totally tubular!

Nice jumper, Victor. To echo Jesse, what are those stitches?

I find that I knit as much in the Sydney summer as winter, but I don't do big projects like your jumper, I'm mostly knitting socks or lace. It would be too much to have all that wool on my lap and legs.
