Well, I managed to finish the sleeve last night, now just to sew that bad boy up, do the ribbing (ick) and ta da!!
I don't know the name of the stitch i ususally use to seam things, but Nicky tried the matress stitch a few weeks ago and liked it - out comes Knitting for Dummies and i shall find instructions on how to do it nicely.
Overall so far, the jumper hasn't used that much - only about 450g of sirdar click dk. Not bad for a manly jumper, lol
