Eggplant and orange

I have two new FO's to show for the current drive, both done in rich colors of wool that make me think of farmers' market colors.

The eggplant-color yoke pullover was knitted with Cascade Greenland, a dense worsted-weight wool with very good stitch definition. I have loved this pattern ever since I saw it in Knitter's magazine a full eleven years ago (!) and I am glad I finally had a chance to try it out. I'll definitely use it again. Other collectors of past issues of the magazine will find it in issue #60 under the name "Ribbing Is No Yoke".

While the pullover was blocking, I made another pair of worsted-weight socks with an odd skein of Cascade 220: Cast on 40 stitches on a #4 circular, knit in 2/2 ribbing. This should fit a small-ish adult foot. And now I know what to do with my next odd skein of Cascade 220.
