I’m not a good wearer of my knits. I’m pretty much over them once they’ve been bound off and blocked. That is until I’m cold (the thyroid doctor lowered my synthroid dose again so now I’m perpetually freezing and tired but my blood pressure is super low and he considers that the be all). The Husband and I have been outside a lot and I’ve been unable to easily tolerate the near freezing temperatures, even with a winter coat, hat and gloves. So I dug deep into the cedar chest and pulled out a warm wool sweater from the past.
I first cast this Elizabeth Zimmermann Yoke Sweater on in 2009. The first version was ripped and I cast on and started over in 2010. It isn’t the best fitting sweater. The yoke style doesn’t work real well with my ample for my size boobs. What this sweater does have going for it is warmth. It is way too warm for inside wear but outside it is perfect on a chilly fall day and just what I needed for 3 hours of Pokemon Go playing on the common in town. Along with the sweater I also wore a knit hat, fingerless mitts, cowl and socks. I guess I do live up to my Pokemon Go name Nothingbutknit.
