I was concerned about the pinkness of the pink and the purpleness of the purple in the yoke. (It’s really a crazy amount of super bold color-work, and I admit that by the end of it, I was starting to get nervous.) But, now that I’m chugging along with the body, I really like the contrast between the bold, colorful top and the understated body. Though, if I’m being honest, I kind of never want to do a “field of dots” sweater ever again. It’s just enough color-work to be a pain, but not enough to be exciting. (It does look nice, though…)
I took a break from the body last night, and worked up the “sleeves.” I don’t think I’ve ever finished both sleeves on a sweater in one sitting (even a baby sweater). This was really just an inch or so of ribbing- super simple and satisfying. Now I think that all sweaters should have short sleeves!
I can’t wait for this thing to be finished and blocked (and those ends to be woven in… ugh).
But then I’ll have to figure out what to wear with it… That’ll be the tricky part.
