Orange jumper (Bond)



You probably can't see it in this picture, but the jumper is stripey, because the tension is all over the place. Oh well, it was a first attempt!

The thing with the Bond is that you can't have any tension on the yarn at all. What I do is unravel a full ball at a time onto the floor behind the knitting machine. That way it will run freely and your knitting won't go stripey. Hope this helps.

I was fairly careful - I think the "take up the slack at the end" is probably what foxed me. Might have another go if I gain any more DK yarn...
