Bad Easter, good knitting

Well the Easter break was not one of the best (nothing particularly bad happened, it just wasn't much good) but at least I got lots of knitting done - I've turned the heel and am about a third of the way down the foot on the embossed leaves socks, finished the first sleeve (finally!) of Trellis, and finished the back and started both sleeves of husby's jumper!
Here is the back of husby's jumper blocking - I probably should have waited until I'd finished all the pieces but I just couldn't! I'm really happy with it - I just hope he never grows out of it (I think it is going to be fairly snug!!) Hurrah for quick knitting!

that's looking fantastic!!! It will be such a great jumper when it's done. I would be excited about blocking it too.

My Easter sucked in a lot of ways, so I can understand.

I clicked on the link and thought THAT MAN WAS YOUR HUSBAND!!!

Ok, I need coffee...

That's a very cool jumper. The only thing I've knit for Mr BDKs is a scarf (which I now wear) and a pair of socks (which I gave to my dad)!

I'm sort of jealous; I can't knit sweaters for my SO as he never wears them! Yours looks so good!

Jumper looks wonderful, don't blame you for blocking early! Hmm, very tasty model in the link ;)

Yeah, we had a pretty flat Easter too... I think we needed more like a month's holiday!

Oh my gosh, if I could only knit that evenly!!! I adore the colour, it brings out the knitting. Shall look forward to seeing this finished.
