yokes and bobbles

I didn’t want to clog up the snowmelt contest post…

A yoked sweater!
I have to steek this and put in the zipper. Actually, I have to go buy a zipper, and then steek the sweater and put in the zipper. It’ll be my first steek.

I was happily knitting along in the yoke portion, loving the rhythm of the two colors and of catching the floats, and I missed the instructional words to the side of the chart that said “don’t knit this row, or this one, or this one”… And so I had to rip back. You can see the yoke looks too tall here, and I wasn’t loving the white.

I’m not usually a big fan of bobbles. On a sweater, they remind me of nipples all over the place, like Artemis of Ephesus.

But I love them here,

Super quick project, super chunky yarn. Details on my ravelry project page.
