Progress. . .

Ripped back the second bit of Byatt and restarted with a stronger contrast colour so that slip-stitching showed up better.

And I'm maybe a third of the way through a potential jumper with my Rowan Big Wool Colour.  This pattern is the Wendy Sweater by Wendy Bernard, a very simple top-down jumper that I'm hoping will be my go-to pattern for chunky wool.  I'm knitting it on 8mm needles so the fabric is quite tight, yet there's still a bit of give in the stockinette.  The fit seems okay so far.  Now I just need to decide if I do the ribbing at the bottom and around the neck in black or gray.
