I am seriously on a roll with the yoked sweaters…I just finished another one last night. And I love it. Here it is:
Pattern: my modified version of Jared Flood’s "Cobblestone Pullover"
Yarn: Fleece Artist BFL Aran, in a blue colorway, just slightly over 2 skeins (the leftovers from the third are going to become thrummed mittens, someday).
Needles: size 8 Denise circulars and Knitpicks Harmony dpns.
Time to knit: Jan. 20th – Feb. 7th
I cast on for this sweater on Inauguration Day, and can hardly believe it’s already done! Of course, in my husband’s words, “it’s a pretty easy one.” It’s true, this is a basic yoked sweater if there ever was one, and I had already worked out the necessary mods with the last one I knit, and of course, I’m a small person so there’s not as much knitting to do. But still, a sweater in 2.5 weeks? Pretty awesome.
I’m madly in love with it, too. I’ve had this Fleece Artist yarn in my stash for quite awhile, and had been thinking of turning it into something else entirely (an Imogen cardigan, to be precise). But I knew this yarn wanted to be something else. I’m so glad I decided to turn it into another Cobblestone.
And today was the perfect day to take photos of it, too…slightly above freezing, and gorgeously sunny. Between the blue skies and the blue sweater, I’m a happy camper.
So, what’s next? I’m actually not quite sure. I’d thought I would cast on for an Owls sweater, but I’m not sure the color of Eco Wool I have would look that great on me as a solid-colored sweater (it’s a sort of light beige-grey). I originally bought it planning to use it as the main color in a colorwork sweater, and I’m leaning more in that direction. So…do I start in on the more Spring-friendly yoked cardigans, like the Tangled Yoke or Coraline? Knit one last warm textured yoke sweater, like Wisteria, before the weather warms up? Launch myself into colorwork yokes, with Aftur? You’d think limiting myself to yoked sweaters would help me narrow in on a project, but I’m still wracked with indecision!
