Hello friends! Turns out a long weekend was just what I needed, and I did finally get caught up on FO pictures! Today is all about my Amazing Technicolor Dream CYOA/CYOA of Many Colors. Last fall I came across an old knit that just wasn't working for me. I originally planned trying to make it a more wearable cardigan, but you guys helped me come to the conclusion that this yarn really needed to be a pullover. And boy, were we all right.
Look at this. It's perfect. It's a focal piece, it's not overwhelming. It fits so well, nothing about it says "I have no clue what I'm doing." The sleeves are perfect. The length is perfect. The neckline is perfect. I can wear it with jeans, leggings, or skirts, tucked or untucked. It is exactly the crazy multi-colored top that I needed in my wardrobe.
I'm so glad I finally found this yarn's true purpose. I actually knit my first sweater ever with this yarn, and two frogging's later I finally have just what I want. The silk content in the yarn makes this just a little nicer than my average cotton top, and I love how the colors all play together.
This time around I did alternate skeins every two rounds to help avoid pooling, and I'm so glad I did. I knit a smaller size of this tee than I did for my silver cropped version, because I wanted a more tailored look, and it's spot on. I'm really so thrilled with this, and I'm so glad I finally managed to overcome all my challenges and hesitations with this yarn to make something I really love!
