aspen yoke pullover

YIP:012 aspen yoke sweater

aspen yoke back

I finally took some photos of the aspen yoke pullover by Meg Swansen I knit as a sample last fall for a class I'm teaching at Webs. This was a quick and fun sample to knit and now it's even more fun to teach. We are almost halfway through the class, and everyone is working on their sleeves. In a few weeks we will join all the pieces for the yoke and be on the home stretch!

Knit out of various colors of Lopi Lite for the yoke and Valley Yarns Berkshire for the body. Details on Ravelry.

Not too much else to report. I got the gardening bug and ordered a mess of seeds from Fedco Seeds. I got basil, Amish paste tomatoes, sunflowers, soybeans, spinach, lettuces, zinnias, snapdragons, and so on. Ambitious? Maybe. We"ll see how I do starting the seeds, and maybe plan b will be buying plants from the nursery.
