Tangled Yoke

Perfect timing! It's 50 degrees this morning- beautiful fall sweater weather. Almost one year after I started it, Tangled Yoke is done! I knew I wanted to make this cardigan as soon as I saw it in last fall's IK. I had a gorgeous (discontinued) reddish Rowan Felted Tweed already in my stash waiting for the perfect sweater.

Please forgive the self timer pictures....

Here is a close up of the tangled back...

Tangled Yoke

Pattern: Tangled Yoke by Eunny Jang from Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Size: 34"
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed, color sh149 - 6.5 balls (50g)
Needles: 40" circular sizes 3.75 for body; 3.5 for collar and button bands; 2.0 for neck edge pickup
Modifications: Knit exactly as written except that I lengthened the body and yoke (total 21 ")and adjusted the waist shaping to fit my waist . Also shortened the sleeves (16 1/2" to underarm) - all for a perfect fit!

Superb well written pattern - simple to knit. When it comes off the needles the only finishing is grafting the underarms, making button bands, and sewing on 9 tiny buttons. I'll be wearing this all fall....

My very reluctant photographer took a few outside pictures - only one of which was usable...

When I saw that Nancy Bush's Estonian Lace Book was coming out in October, I knew I had to pull out Irtfa'a and get moving on it. (again - unbreakable rule about only having one big lace project on the needles). I won't be finishing anytime soon, so I'll have plenty of time to dream of Estonian Lace. Luckily this time, I left myself some good notes about where I stopped last January~

Next blog post should be a finished quilt - I'm binding it now...
