Half a Phoenix

I had to undo about seven rows, so I set a life line and then took it off the needles and thought I'd take a picture of the back. This is from Meg Swason's Knitting, one of the big graphic sweaters. The color graduation wasn't quite mathematically correct, so I figured out that I could undo a little bit and still be in the ballpark, at least, so I did that. It's turning out nicely.

 

I'm using US 2's and the recommended yarns from the book for the pullover, but Meg added more of the dark burgandy so that I'd have enough for the sleeves and the finishing work. We'll see how it turns out.
