I finished the sunflower sweater last night. Once I made my mind up to just get it done, it went pretty fast. I did the second sleeve in one day! Please excuse the washed out photo- It's cloudy and drizzly here today. The sunflower and sleeve stripes are really a bright yellow, with deeper gold flower center and side stripes.

I'm still not sure about the stripes on the sleeves, but I guess it's OK. It looks a little color-blocky when the sleeves are out like that, though the stripe I added in the collar helped some. Probably when the sweater is on a kid it'll look fine.

Whaddaya think?

I think the sunflower looks spectacular. I do find that the color proportions will look different when it is worn, so I wouldn't worry too much about the stripes.

I'm told, too, that we may be able to score some Cotton Fleece on ebay-- I'll have to give it a looksee, but I need to start my Christmas projects asap, so I may go with substituting yarns. Best of luck finding a blue skein!

p.s. My friend Shasta tells me I may be able to find Cotton Fleece in a store close by. If you want, I can try to find your shade of blue there. I can't make any guarantees, but if I find something close to what you have, I'd be happy to send it your way. You can mail me the color & dye lot to balladofyoko at yahoo.
