Finished Object Photos

Pattern: EPS yolk sweater from Knitting Without Tears
Yarn: Purple: Galway Highland Heather Green: Manos Del Uruguay
Needles: Knitpicks options size 7

I was standing in bright sunlight, so the color looks more hot pink than purple, but it is actually a deep, lovely shade of purple. I am so happy with how this sweater turned out! I am planning more sweaters based on Elizabeth's Percentage System. It is a great why to make a sweater. The fit is fabulous. It was easy peasy to knit as well.

Here is a close up of the yolk pattern. I used the Manos for a couple of reasons. First, due to the cost, I don't use Manos much at all. Second, since the yolk pattern is a simple one, I thought it would highlight a great vergated yarn well. Third, I adore the impact the slubby green yarn makes in an otherwise traditional sweater.

I haven't blocked the sweater yet, so there is some major puckering just below the yolk.

Pattern: Cozy
Yarn: Philosopher's Wool

While I was at Stitch n Bitch Wednesday night, I finished Cozy. Don't look at the ends I haven't woven in yet!

The stitch pattern on this wrap is really lovely, but the pictures on Knitty do not do it justice.

Thank you to Jenifer from Piddleloop for all the great photos.

Off to finish the Sockapolza 4 socks!

Happy Knitting!

Beautiful! I like the Manos in the yoke. I can see a hint of the of purple in the second photo. EZ's percentage system is brilliant.

The wrap is beautiful, too. I like the stitch pattern.
