A New Pink Sweater!

When you finish up one pink sweater, it's time to cast on a new pink sweater!  (For those of you counting, this will be the fourth pink sweater of the year, and I still have stash for at least three more.)  2016 somehow became the year of the pink sweater, I'm not sure how, but I'm just going with it.
Beeline in Carnation
This new sweater is a pullover.  I just realized I've been alternating styles:  Dexter was a cardigan, Pink Memories was a pullover, the Featherweight was a cardigan, and now I'm doing another pullover.  I'm also tired of typing the word pullover.  Anyway, the pattern is Beeline, which is basically a classic sweater shape with a scooped neckline and decorative yarn overs (the holes).  I'm knitting this in Madelinetosh DK Twist in the (discontinued) colorway, Carnation.  It's the same colorway I used for Dexter, but a different yarn base.  Also, I'm still amused by the pink needles.

You can see a little bit of the yarn overs in the raglan shaping even though it's trying to roll up in itself - maybe it's shy?  Going from fingering weight gauge to worsted weight gauge is always fun.  These heavier weight sweaters fly off the needles.  They don't get as much wear here in North Texas, which is why I don't knit very many of them, but they do knit up quickly!
