Well done you! I love hand knitted stuff on wee ones. I am lucky my Aunt is quite good at knitting - so knitting lots and lots of cardigans for Ella.
Hope your jumper turns out

Its not really something that I have ever considered.

When we were younger my mam used to do loads of knitting we had all the cardigans, hats basically everything that could be knitted was and they were lovely.
She doesnt knit much anymore since she was CTS which plays up more if she knits or sews.

I used to be able to do the basics when I was younger....... In, over, through and off is what I was taught. It always worked, just a straight row of loops but I could easily do quite a few rows and make "scarves" lol :lol:

Would love to see pictures too.

I tried to knit a scarf with that thick textured wool, I got in such a muddle that I gave up. Well done following a pattern, I may try again whilst I'm on mat leave but not sure how it will go!
