Green finish finished jumper

I am ready for some shopping!
 I´ve finished this jumper more then 2 weeks ago but post it only now%)
The fabric was bought in summer, this was nice suggestion on one local sewing forum.The fabric was made in Finland (Orneule Oy) for the army clothes. I took a lot of it to practice to sew knits and to make something useful for me and Semeon too:)

When I was looking for the old Burda magazines in the internet (because I want to buy some old nice issues to have in my collection and to sew from them of course), I pretty much like this jumper from Burda 11/2011 but I didn't have this issue. Some weekend my friend Pasha(btw this is male name in Russia) brought me some magazines from his mother and there was this number too!
Burda 11/2011
I traced and cut it pretty fast, I don't have any problem with tracing from Burda because for me this is only one experience of tracing%) So I am ok with tracing the Burda patterns.  

I choose to make 34 size instead of 36 because I want to have not too oversized jumper. Instructions were ok, because there was a master-class with the pictures in the magazine. So I made the jumper pretty fast%)) I don't have a serger so I used zigzag to finish seam allowances. For hemming I used a twin needle. This one was little bit narrow so for the next project I bought another one.

I like long sleeves, loose shoulders and the way how it look from the back and how you can drape it at the front. The jumper is very comfortable and warm! To sew knits was pretty nice and easy, so I will continue.
