Mellow Yellow

I've been unreasonably drawn to the color yellow this season. I know it's one of the "hot" colors in fashion but I don't usually agree with those folks so it's a bit of a new experience for me. Not only have I tried on a million yellow tops when out shopping (it's REALLY hard to find a shade I can wear) but I started the Holly Jacket from the cover of the last Interweave Knits in a lovely yellow. I've dubbed it my Lemonade Jacket because there's nothing hollyish about it. Even with all my distractions I mentioned in the last few days I've managed to finish the back and am nearly halfway through the left front. I CAN'T WAIT to wear this one and keep trying to talk myself out of buying more yellow tops and sweaters since I'll have one shortly.

Wow, you really are crusing through the sweater. Yep, I think you're on to something, finishing what you're working on so you don't have to buy more yarn/garments in the same color.

mmm. Lemonade looks great so far! Is there lots of finishing? (can I ask how we're doing on the whole finishing before casting on thing?)
