You Picked It!

The Drops jacket with shawl collar started out strong but was quickly overtaken by Hey Teach later in the day. I tabulated the scores by giving a full point to the first sweater mentioned and 1/2 point if you had a second choice.

Hey Teach 9
Ivy 2

And now, let's pick the yarn. I won't give you guys total control over this one because sometimes the yarn decides for itself that it doesn't want to work out. I promise to attempt to use whatever one gets the most votes first.

The pattern calls for a worsted weight cotton. I'm not entirely sure I want it made with cotton and after looking on ravelry, I can see that it looks great in just about any type of worsted weight yarn. So, here is what I have lying around that would fit the bill.

Cascade 220 in turquoise

Cascade 220 in my favorite green

Artful yarns Flora (cotton/rayon blend) in hibiscus

Speak now.


  1. I love, love, LOVE the green!!

    First, I am glad Hey Teach won. I woould have voted if I didn't spend the enire afternoon driving my children everywhere.
    Next, I vote for the Artful yarns Flora because I think it will have the right drape for the pattern.

  3. I know nothing about how the yarn drapes, but I really like the green. Love all the bright colors.

  4. Carl votes for the Flora even though he knows I can't get enough green in my wardrobe.

    If I were making it for myself, I would choose the blue, but all three are lovely. I think the green is the best for you.

  12. Green! I missed the pattern voting, but that's what I would have picked anyway!
