Modifications to the pattern: I added the border pattern to the sleeves because I wasn't sure I had enough orange yarn to complete them as shown in the pattern. I like the change.

Love the sweater, hate the yarn
I finished the Folkloric Blocks sweater (from Knitter's Winter 2006). I love the colors. I love the design. I will love the square buttons I intend to find for it. I still hate the yarn though. Knitting a complex sweater (intarsia isn't particularly difficult, but I much prefer Fair Isle in the round) with yarn you don't like makes for a less than delightful experience. But it's done, and I'm sure the intended recipient will like it. And I'm going to sell the leftover yarn on eBay.
