I had high hopes of finishing my Jacquard Pulli before the end of September, and also the end of Project Spectrum. It seemed like the perfect swan song… alas, I don’t think I can fit sixty rows of Fair Isle into now and tomorrow, but I may be able to make a small dent. As it stands now, the sleeves and complete and it has been successfully yoked on to a 48″ circular needle.
Every time I knit a yoked sweater (this is my third) I wonder why I don’t make all my sweaters this way. It is so intuitive. It feels so right. Maybe I was a yoked sweater in a previous life. What I am trying to say is that I love it. And if I get my way, there will be more and more yoked sweaters here in the future.
I am “pleased as punch” that these colors are working so well together. If you recall, it was a late night stash dive last April that brought me to this color combination… and I am so happy that they work so well together! I couldn’t have imagined a better grouping! I had one solitary eggplant-shaded DK-weight skein that I tried to work in there, but I kept on coming back to this set.
Although they are not exactly the same weight, I have not run into gauge issues or related problems. The dark brown (main color) and the white are Jo Sharp DK Wool, the green is Knit Picks Andean Silk, the Pink is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, and the blue is Cascade Lana d’Oro.
So, I have the Fair Isle yoke decreases to finish up… but can the sweater compete with Socktoberfest? There may be room for both…
