Just a stop in the road

September 4, 2007

Road to Golden

I’m so excited about this one you get the computer cam, fresh-off-the-needles shot! (See the need for blocking as my hem attempts to take flight?) I cast on a week ago Saturday and finished this morning. And that includes knitting the yoke three times. This sweater will always bring to mind our recent sojourn to West Virginia, and DH’s relief on seeing the finished product as he confessed his fear that the colors were a seventies nightmare trumped only by my aunt & uncle’s green, orange, and brown bathroom! I think it worked out ok in the end!

Specs: pattern- “Road to Golden” by Lisa Shroyer, Knitscene Fall 2007; yarn- Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Snickerdoodle, Daffodil, Spruce, Avacado, Thyme, and Blue Ink; needles- K’picks Options & fixed circs in sizes 3 and 4.

    Your sweater turned out beautifully, and I love the colors! Perfect for fall…

    Are the instructions for the yoke OK, or did you have to make a lot of modifications?

    Awesome sweater, I’m jealous of your talents. How’s the WOTA against your skin? Not too scratchy?

    You know what it reminds me of? I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the BBC Robin Hood (they play it on BBC America), but the sweater looks very much like something Marian would wear. Extremely cool.
