Get it? Yoke? The color is sort of egg yoke? Ok, maybe I'm just a little punchy. I joined the previously knitted sleeves and I'm nearly at the very exciting but slightly intimidating yoke, oh boy!
Isn't this yarn yummy? I am in total lust with this yarn. Silky Wool from Elsebeth Lavold. The color, the texture, the smooth way it knits up. Pure. Love.
However, the pattern is a bit problematic for the novice. I feel somewhat sacrilegious in criticizing Eunny - but there is an error in the increase section for the body and the directions for joining the sleeves are less than clear. And then there are the 2 completely useless markers one stitch from each edge. Huh? Isn't there enough to worry about without messing with a stitch marker flopping about and threatening to fall off each row turn? Those little ##$@^$^ fell off one to many times and I got rid of them. So there.
Erm... I must be close to that time of the month. Except - I don't do that anymore! Guess I'm just a bitch.
But... isn't she lovely? I am 20 rows away from the yoke. I can't wait, but I am a tad fearful. Will Eunny flummox me again? we shall see....
