The Magical Pullover of Awesomeness

Do you remember when I finished the Ramble shawl and I mentioned that there would be more projects in the Aniversario colorway coming along this year?  I wasn't kidding.  Last year I knit a hat in Aniversario in the Mecha base and I fell in love with the way it looked.  I've always loved the way hand dyed colors look on singles yarns, but since Mecha is a bulky weight yarn, the stitches are nice and big and really show off the colors in Aniversario beautifully.  I did some thinking, because bulky weight and Texas don't necessarily mix, but I decided to just go for it!

I started the Il Grande Favorito pullover over the weekend.  I'm already past the separation of sleeve stitches from the body, and this thing is just flying!  I am alternating skeins and before I began, I sorted the skeins somewhat so they would work together colorwise.  Some of the skeins have more yellow in them than others - those will be towards the hem of the sweater, away from my face!

Here's a close up - check out those colors!  Also, huge needles!
