I love my yoked pullover so much, I've accidentally started two more. First I started one for Jim using another Drops pattern and some Elsbeth Lavold Classic picked up a while back. But both Jim and I didn't like the placement of the colors so it had to be ripped.
From here on, the light blue is the main color, knit in plain stockinette, so it was time for Jim to try it on. But the results were disappointing. It seemed tight at the shoulders and loose at the neck. I was so frustrated. So I put it aside, finished a pair of socks, dyed some yarn, and started another yoked pullover, this time for me.
Since the first one was so great, I decided to make the same pattern again, but it had to be different some how. So I'm using sock yarn, with a bright colored yoke (Trekking XXL) and dark body and sleeves. Also, I'll make it a cardigan so there will be a blue button band and collar. In hindsight I think I was inspired by the tin I use to hold my knitting bits and bobs.
It makes me happy. Before blogging, I got Jim to try on his yoke again so I could take a picture and ask for advice, but you know, it doesn't look so bad anymore.
