Good enough to wear to work

I've been saying that the sweaters I've made are too casual to wear to work. Friends have been telling me I'm stupid. So in their honor, I wore this to work today.


I'm having a hard time getting a good picture of this, but I really like how it looks on. And even with all the fussing I did with it (reworking the bottom, doing the sleeves backwards, starting the yoke over after I'd already knit 3 inches), it ultimately was fairly easy.

I'm not thrilled with the collar. I'm not thrilled with any collar I've ever made on any sweater at all, so I think I need to be on the lookout for one I do like.

Meanwhile, I've knit the gauge square and done some test cables for my next sweater: possibly a gansey, but maybe just another EPS sweater, maybe with vertical ribbing.

Wonderful sweater and perfect for work. I can't work a neck to save my life either .... one of the great mysteries of knitting.
