FO: Yoked Sweater

I finally finished it! (Now maybe I should finish my first "real" sweater? The printed silk cardigan?)
And, I promise, I would never leave my dorm/house with green shorts and purple tights. I was wearing a skirt but it got gasoline on it :(.

Pattern: Seamless Yoked Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman, with my own numbers and waist decreases/increases.
Yarn: Valley Yarns Northampton - a lovely yarn, it softened quite a bit when I "washed" (I just wetted it really...) it.
Needles: Knitpicks Options set, size 8 (love these needles, made it VERY easy to try on during all parts of the sweater!)

Maybe I'll get to wear it tomorrow?

It's so pretty! I love the pattern on the yoke! You chose the colours very well, and it fits you like a second skin. Beautiful.
