Yopping 43 - EZ as Pi

The sweater is done. I need to block and weave in ends and put on buttons but as it is it is finished and all my worsted stash is used up. I did lose at yarn chicken while I was binding off, but luckily I had a close enough match in my basket of odds and ends left over from my sock yarn blanket.

I want to make the sleeves longer, but I need to wait until I get some more yarn.

I trusted the pattern and it is going to fit beautifully. Good old Elizabeth Zimmerman.

She must have been a math genius to figure out that this:

with one quick fold turns into this:

which is why the reference to Pi in the title.

I am now diligently working on my double knit - pictures next week.

Happy yopping.


  1. This color scheme is lovely. It's so spring. Can't wait to see its photo shoot.

    1. Thank you for the well wishes. I had to cancel my surgery b/c there was a major power outage in SF. I have to reschedule.

  2. Wow, look at that? I love it and can't wait to see it on.

  3. I am amazed at the sweater and how it comes together. Loving the colors too.

  4. I confess, I'm completely confused by how what I'm seeing in the first picture turned into the cool sweater in the second picture. I believe you - I just don't comprehend it. lol I would need a video tutorial just to make that part happen, I think.

  5. Damn that close call yarn chicken would have inspired strong language at my house! Especially with 7 million stitches per row! Your zen shames me.

  6. That's amazing! My mind is boggling trying to work out how photo A becomes photo B. I like Becki's idea of a video.

  7. I've not tried an EZ sweater but I have read one of her books and I don't think I am a good enough knitter to appreciate her methods or to be able to follow them. She seems to have a cult following of people who knitted back when she was around. Interesting methods! Love how yours turned out!

  8. This looks lovely, Mary-Anne. :-)
