I'm so excited!  I finally finished my first sweater, using fingering weight yarn!  It's Joelle's Favorite Yoke sweater from the book KnitKnit.  I knit it using Zen Yarn Garden's Bling yarn.  Roxanne from Zen Yarn Garden was great to work with, and dyed the yarn just the colour I wanted!  (much closer to the second picture - the first is a bit light and unsparkly)




Thanks for looking Smiley

 Shocked  It looks great. I'm so jealous. I've been wanting to knit this when I saw it at Purlsoho but I don't want to buy a $25 book for one pattern.

Awww, thanks Smiley

Rosecomet, the book was a gift from my boyfriend (or I might not have purchased it either...)  but the pattern seemed like a pretty straightforward yoke sweater. 
Here is a series about knitting a yoke sweater, and ends with a calculator so you can make one with custom sizing.  The only difference I saw is that it is knit top-down, and mine was knit bottom-up.  I would have preferred top-down, I think...
