Yoke Pullover

It's the end of what's been a quiet and moderately productive day (I actually went to the library-it's been a while!). After exams were done, I cleared out my project box and finished up a few things. However, I thought I'd share something I finished earlier this semester, that was just in its beginning stages when I started this blog. Remember the Vogue Yoke Pullover? Here it is, 3 years later. It didn't take me that long to knit it, but I procrastinated weaving in the many ends for, oh, a year.

Yoke Pullover by Krisien Cowan, knit in Cascade Eco Wool

The yarn is Cascade Eco Wool, and it only took 2.5 skeins making this a very economical knit. I love the yarn, and don't want to block the sweater because it still smells natural! The only problem with this sweater is that it turned out to be very, very warm (this coming from someone who is ALWAYS cold), making it difficult to wear anywhere. Stay tuned for more!

There's something I like very much about this design....maybe it's the symmetry. I'm looking forward to seeing it in real life!

Jess! This looks lovely on you! As for how warm it is to wear -- do you have any rotations on the prairie next winter? The town where your Mom's two younger sisters were born had a couple inches of snow on May 15!

Hey Jess,

Just move somewhere where it is really cold so you can wear your sweater. Simple:)

Jess, I absolutely ADORE this sweater. It's so "you".

And Wow, you're a great knitter!
