From Plant to Sweater

Long winding country roads lined with vibrant fall foliage.  Yes, that's what this sweater reminds me of most.  I worked it top down, using an earthy brown worsted and my plant dyed tansy yarn.  I had just enough for the large block of color on the yoke and a little extra for each sleeve.  I wasn't sure how the increases would look on the solid color, but I really like them; each increase reminds me of the crook of a tree!

With the leftover brown and the green yarn I dyed from the tansy stems, I made up a hat for myself.  As it usually goes, I never get my knits to myself!

I'm working on the patterns for both pieces and hope to have them finished soon.

What have you been working on this week?
