Leaf Yoke Detour


Because I will do anything to avoid seaming up Shadow October Frost.  Including knitting another sweater.  Angela Hahn's Leaf Yoke Top [Ravelry link] in Knit Picks Comfy worsted, a super-soft pima cotton and acrylic blend.  The catalog called the color "planetarium".  I was expecting an inky navy-black.  It is really a dark Prussian blue.  Now why don't they just say that in the catalog instead of giving it an artsy-fartsy name?

  1. I love that leaf yoke and the color is wonderful. I must really learn how to knit

  2. I already finished the top and sewed a stretch velvet skirt to match. Perhaps one of these days, I can get someone to take pix of me wearing them. It has become too cool to wear a sleeveless top. Last week, the highs didn't even reach 70F.

  3. What a beautiful color! I wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog (I wish I had thought to use the Chinese way of determining age to my advantage when I was a teenager!), and then I saw your lovely Leaf Yoke top. Brava!
