I liked knitting this one – beautiful, soft yarn to work with, quick knit (due to the bulky yarn), just enough colorwork to keep it interesting. The only knitting problem I had was that the suddenness of the decreases on the yoke results in a weird bulge on my back right above the armpit – you don’t notice it because of the bulky yarn, but it seems like a design flaw to me. The only other problem I ran into was that the red color ran when I blocked the sweater 🙁 Not too bad, luckily, but I would have used a color guard solution, had I known that might happen.
