    What great progress! The color combination is lovely. I’m hoping I can get some gift knitting wrapped up soon so that I can focus back on my (first) sweater this month. The weather this month does indeed seem great for sweaters. :)

    OMG! Those colors! That sweater is going to be gorgeous!!

    I don’t mind a bit of colour stain on finger and needle, since the colour is absolute beautiful…can’t wait to see the sweater.

    What an amazing color!!! Too bad they are no longer making it. I’m sure there will be plenty of knitters reading this that are going to be jealous that you’ve got some and they can’t get any. I know I am!

    I love the color of the Indigo that you are using. The color is such a rich deep blue hue. I am waiting to see the finished product.

    That blue is so calming, it will look stupendous on you!

    I love the colour of your sweater. Mmm blues. I’ve been very into blues lately. I am close to finishing my first sweater, just in time for National Knit a Sweater Month…even though I started last month. I hope to cast on for another one in the next couple of days. =)

    The colors are very pretty. Can’t wait to see the finished sweater.

    It’s going to be beautiful. My sweater is flying off the needles as well :o )

    Yay for November sweaters! You always do such lovely work that fits you well!

    Wow, you’ve made tremendous progress! I think you’re on your way to finishing two sweaters again this year…
    The color is indeed lovely. The indigo is dyeing my hands and needles a bit, too but not too badly. I didn’t realize that the yarn is out of production. That’s sad, because mine is knitting up just beautifully. Remember the gorgeous deep red shades they had? Shame that’s no longer available.
    Godspeed on that colorwork, my friend.

    Such a beautiful shade of blue! I’m not much of a colourwork knitter – but I have a huge list of sweaters in my Ravelry queue this year. Only one is a pullover (I like cardigans and the ability to leave them open). There are just so many gorgeous patterns around this year.

    The colors you have chosen are great!
    I´m knitting ,,Aftur” too but in wine red – and I´m using a different kind of lopi – plötulopi – which is unspun. And I´m knitting mine top down.

    I´m sure you will have no trouble with the color work, the yoked pullovers are dead easy and fun to knit!

    Lolly – that is going to be lovely – that is, hands down, my favorite shade of blue.

  15. Jen

    Man, I love the blue of your sweater! I’m really into that color laterly myself.

    And I think your Lopi colors are much nicer than the “trad” ones.

    love your brighter, happier colors!!!!! looking great so far!

    I love the colors you picked out! They are really great. And by the way, you’ve been tagged my dear…

    those are some amazing colors! Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  19. Vicki

    Haha, “aftur.”

    I love the colors you’ve chosen. After the inspiration here and from my newly delivered “Opinionated Knitter” I might have the courage to try a yoke sweater myself…

  20. Elinor

    Oh, such sweater envy! It’s so beautiful! The color is fabulous, and the yarn looks really yummy. And what you’ve got on the needles there is lovely. My Rogue is slow, because I drove a lot this weekend. Lame. Your sweater rocks.

  21. whitney

    Wow, great progress! And I absolutely love that rich teal color, it is fantastic. Can’t wait to see how the whole thing turns out.

    (I’m knitting a yoke-y sweater for NaKniSweMo, too!)

  22. Nora

    Love the deep indigo colour, L.

  23. Brenda

    That indigo yarn is really lovely! It looks so soft too. Perfect colors for the yoke, especially with your fair coloring. Best of luck!

  24. Sasha

    oooh I love those colours Lolly! They’ll look gorgeous together all knittedup into your next masterpiece! :)

  25. pamela wynne

    I can’t stop thinking about that lovely blue! Can’t wait to see how the yoke comes together.

  26. courtney

    I love the colors you are using, I think it’s going to balance very well. The indigo in particular is really spectacular. It’s always a shame when you discover that a yarn you love is no longer in production, but at least you’ll have this beautiful sweater to wear all the time. I wonder if your torso will be blue when you take it off! Smurfette Lolly! :)

    What a great sweater! I’ve often ogled it (ah yes, with both amorous invitation and challenge) … the colors are great too. I’ll be interested to hear how the Lopi knits up and blocks — I find it prohibitively scratchy.

    Hey, I came across this post MONTHS late. Jody MacKenzie is still in business as Botanical Shades, she moved to Maine but is still dyeing and will be at festivals. Yay! I love her yarns.
