I finished reknitting the body of the Tiger Lily Pullover this week and have started on the sleeves. Easy, mindless knitting. It is amazing how much difference changing the gauge can make in the pooling. Here is what the sweater used to look like.
The striping of the green, pink and red of the new version, as opposed to the pooling of those colors on the old version, really tones down the wild colors. The scale of the pooling is also more consistent in the reknit version, which just makes the sweater look more like, well, a sweater, instead of some psychedelic hallucination. It also fits much better.
