Not the most amazing picture in the world, but this is Beyond Puerperium, minus the buttons. I knit it using Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in oceana and chamomile colorways, after seeing this beautiful version on Ravelry.
Everything went exactly according to plan and I love, love, love how the sweater came out, except the yarn, the oceana colorway in particular, bled like a mofo when I blocked. I think I should have expected it, because the colorways are SO saturated, but what I didn't expect was that the yellow would soak up some of the extra aqua dye, and now looks muddy and dull. I still think it's a fine sweater and totally wearable, but not at all what I envisioned when I first put those two colorways together. Oh well.
