Children's Yoke Sweater
This sweater was a low cognitive demand project (got that phrase from a hilarious knitblogger here) that I managed to finish in two weekends, despite the interference of work, children, housework and people generally getting on my nerves with various needs and demands (see first two in list). After a brief jaunt to the local mall earlier today (don't be jealous, it sucks and doesn't even have an Orange Julius. Yeah, it's bush league) with my elder daughter who needed to get a birthday present for a friend, I sat down and completed the yoke of the sweater. All that remains is the odious weaving in of underarm strands, and I'll be done and ready to file this project under 'baby shower gifts that seem nice unless you look really closely'.
The sweater is officially a stash-buster as no yarn was purchased in the creation of this garment. Here are the professional knit blog specs:
Pattern: Elizabeth Zimmermann's Children's Yoke Sweater, Knitting Around
Yarn: Cascade 220, random discontinued colors (yeah, that's what happens when they stay in your stash over 3 years...)
Needles: Addi Turbo 8 (16 and 24 inches)
Elizabeth Zimmermann will do you right, every time.
