seamless yoke sweater at last!

all i can say about this sweater is.... yayayayayayayayayay!!! i love it! it fits, it's totally comfy and it doesn't make me look like i'm wearing a dumpy, homemade sack of.. you know.

pattern: EZ's seamless yoke sweater from knitting without tears
yarn: just over 6 balls of queensland kathmandu dk and 1.5 balls of noro silk garden lite
needles: size 7 (p1,k1tbl ribbing); size 8 (st st)
mods: i followed EZ's template in all ways except i modified the decreases around the yoke, so that they would be spread out more. following instructions from barbara walker's knitting from the top down, i decreased 20 stitches for every 5 rounds.
result: looooooooooove!
downsides: only one - the stupid ladders on the sleeves caused by having knit them on dpns. next time... 2 circs!
ravel it

Very lovely. I love the combination of the colorful Noro yoke with the neutral tweedy body.
