It has reached the point where I can’t count on having high-quality daylight when I get home in the evenings, so this photo doesn’t do a great job of showing off the colors in this photo, but who cares – it’s done! This sweater was simple and fun to make, and I’m happy with the sweater if not with the photo. The right sleeve is red, not orange as it appears, and the left sleeve is purple, not blue. Yay for unintentional camera tricks. When I was a kid, I liked a Willy Wonka candy called Rinky Dinks, which came in red, purple, and green, and I have been calling this my Rinky Dinks sweater because it reminds me of those colors.
I am also working on piecing and finishing the adult-sized brown sweater that I worked on all summer. I hope to be able to show that one off next Wednesday.
For fun, I’m reading Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train (and by “fun” I mean “trying to finish it quickly so I can start Geraldine Brooks’ The Secret Chord or H.S. Cross’ Wilberforce — or anything, really, with the possible exception of Paradise Lost”).

It can be so frustrating when knitting pictures don’t turn out the way I want them to; glad you are rolling with it. 🙂 Always nice to finish a project!!
Love that sweater! Thanks for sharing.
Yes – sadly it’s getting to the time of year where taking photos is a bit of a lighting challenge. The sweater looks amazing!
What a great sweater- that just opens up so many ideas with different colors like that- well done!
Thanks! I’ve made dozens of these little color block sweaters over the years and they’re always a hit.
Beautiful! I love the tension of your knitting!
Awesome sweater! I want to do something similar for myself but haven’t quite decided on a pattern yet…plus gotta get that Christmas crafting out of the way first!
Thanks! Good luck with your project.
