Did I mention that I cast on another project? This time, a yoke jumper.
I came across this pattern on Skeindeer Knits podcast on YouTube, and I knew it was the perfect pattern for some stash busting. I have a 500g cone of Jamieson and Smith 2ply jumper weight in Natural I bought on a whim last December; a colour I don’t usually gravitate towards. I combined it with Cascade 220 Fingering in Mauve Orchid and Plum (from my Box of Spices shawl) for a swatch, and it looked good, so I proceeded to cast it on because … well, why not 😉?
It became another commute knitting as the repeats are straightforward enough. Now the yoke is finished and blocked (I think Eli – the designer – mentioned blocking yokes before continuing in one of her podcasts, but can’t remember her reason; may be it’s to do with fitting). Since I don’t fancy the neckline, I cast on for the largest size with a view to making the neck wider, and then proceeded for my size as prescribed. In hindsight, I should have done a provisonal cast on, but I didn’t know I could do that. If that doesn’t work, taking out the ribbing shoudn’t be a problem, hopefully.
Now on to endless stocking stitch 🙂.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
