Knitting Flore

I've been working on the Flore sweater pattern by Julie Hoover. I really like it. It's very straight forward for a first time sweater project. I went to a local yarn shop recently to ask about how to divide the yoke because I misread something/was over thinking it. The kind woman gave me a very helpful tip: "it's easy to over think these things sometimes." I laughed because I do tend to over think things! I'm trying to be less analytical of the instructions and I've been able to progress independently now. I hope I can finish it on my own, though I suspect I might need some assistance with the neckline. We'll see.

I opted to make a solid because I tend to gravitate towards solids over tiny stripes and I did not want to take on tiny stripes for my first sweater. I'm obsessed with the yarn I'm using. I keep trying to find more projects to make so I can buy more of this yarn! It's as soft as cotton, not even the tiniest bit itchy. You'd never suspect it is wool.

Do you knit? What have you been working? I'd love to see. I'm always scouring the web for new patterns and love seeing what other people are working on.
