new design and gift certificate winner

Hey all! Webs was kind enough to publish another one of my sweater designs. This one is called the Harlequin Yoke Pullover and is knit out of Valley Yarns Deerfield. (Ravelry link for the sweater). This was a fun sweater to design, especially sorting out the correct decreases to keep the diamond pattern in the yoke. The idea came when I was knitting while watching a Six Feet Under episode with Elliott, and saw one of the characters wearing this sweater out of the corner of my eye. But when I looked up that's not what she was wearing at all! So I scribbled down a sketch before I forgot the idea and here it is. I had a lot of fun trying different color combinations for the diamonds, and I think you could really change the feel of the sweater depending on what colors you chose.

In other fun news, Jane won the raffle for the Webs gift certificate. Thank you so much to everyone who entered the raffle and supported Emmaus's work with the homeless. I'm thinking I might have to shoot for the 100 mile ride next year...
