Elena's sweater

Elena's sweater has been making good progress. (Elena's one of the soon-to-be graduates from Kazakhstan). The body is done and I just finished the hood.

The yellow really is that intense. I think it's the first time that I wish some of the dye would wash out quickly. Just enough, mind you, not too much.

I did the hood before the sleeves in case I run out of yellow or green yarn and then I could put in a stripe on the sleeves for contrast. That would look much better on the sleeves than the hood.

So far, though, I think I will have enough to finish, especially since Elena has short arms.
