I did it! I broke my streak of not finishing KALs. This sweater was just a delight to knit. I got through the body and sleeves, knitting during movies, on car rides, and at parties. I added a heart motif at the sleeve, because I love it! Then it was time for the yoke, you know, the fun part!
PSA – today is the very last day to get the Heart on my Sleeve ebook, go get it right now! This collection will no longer be available after February 28, 2018.
The yoke took a bit of thinking. I perused the Ravelry projects, looking for the perfect combo. I had a beautiful Sunshine and Storm kit from Rainbow Heirloom on hand, which gave me a LOT of colours to choose from. The nice thing about taking them from a kit was that I already knew they would work together. No guess work on this one. I decided on some tonal pairings, lighter and darker. It gave the sweater the look of larger triangles, rather than smaller ones. Reminiscent of flying geese quilts. Jones loved it and wore it to school right away. He is still an excellent recipient of hand knits!

Size knit: 8-10, which leaves some room to grow.
I’m sorry to see the end of the Heart on my Sleeve project. It was an amazing thing to be part of. It was so much fun to work with designers we admire, and it was great to be able to do a bit of good in the world. It wouldn’t be possible without the awesomeness that is the knitting community and for this we THANK YOU!
