YOP: Rye Field Pullover

I've been almost entirely monogamous this past week! And weirdly enough, not on the project I showed you last time - in fact, I haven't touched that at all, expect to blog the last three squares.

Because, as it would happen, Tuesday evening I found an absolutely gorgeous test-knit I knew I just had to sign up for! It's the Rye Field Pullover, and I had the perfect yarn for it in my stash!
Fortunately I was approved, so I did my gauge swatch (once again being reminded very forcefully at how DIFFERENT my gauge is in the round vs. when knitting flat!) and cast on Wednesday afternoon. I've been working on it pretty much monogamously (with the exception of a square or two on my cozy memories blanket, when I needed something more mindless) and the body is coming along very nicely. The yarn is SO amazingly soft I just can't keep my hands of it :)
It has a weird stripe where I had to rip back and reknit with crinkled yarn, but I'm hoping it will even out with blocking. I've tried it on a couple of times, and it fits me just right :)


  1. That does look really pretty. I like the arm length. I would love to wear it.

  2. It looks great, looking forward to seeing it completed!

  3. Looks good! That pattern looks interesting.

  4. That's going to be gorgeous.
