Ian's Aspen Yoke Sweater
Here is another offering from Kathy's blogless friend, Kim. My last post was February 17, 2007; I've just completed this ski sweater, using the EZ Percentage System, for my 13-year-old son, Ian. My inspiration was the Aspen Yoke sweater in Knitting Workshop. Elizabeth references Wool Gathering #7, and since I didn't have that available, I used the Graphs for Knitting from Leaflet #3 in The Opinionated Knitter for my leaf design (number 13). The Yarn is Knit Picks, Wool of the Andes, in Spruce (main color) and Cloud. I liked working with Wool of the Andes; it is very soft and knit up nicely on #9 needles. Luckily, there is room for Ian to grow (but not too much); it is ready and waiting for next ski season!
