All golden

Eve is coming along nicely. I love the colour, I love the pattern, but I'm still not 100% on the two of them together.... I think I'm about 65%... but it rises a little bit each row. My biggest worry is that it's going to be just too much yellow...

The yarn is lovely to work with though. A nice switch from my last deep stash dive (The Red Stella). This one was definitely a good purchase.

And since were still in the land of yellow...the sunflower has bloomed!
 As you can see, Mr. Bumble Bee was out enjoying the nice sunny landing pad.
And something that might surprise you... while the plant itself is a little taller than I am (5'7") the flowers aren't all that big
I counted, and there are 14 other heads on this plant. Since the seeds came from a mixed plant, I have absolutely no idea what kinds of sunflower it is.... any thoughts?

Oh I'm loving the yellow. I like how you paired the photos with the sunflowers! Very complimentary.

What a cutsie tootsie sunflower! Your yellow sweater is making me happy. It's a beautiful transition color from summer to (sniff, sniff).....fall.

I adore that yellow. I don't wear it well. I would wear that though!

In the picture, the sweater yarn looks like a very lovely pale yellow...and wouldn't be too "in your face" yellow. Looks beautiful. And yippee for the bursting sunflower. So pretty.

Lovely. It looks like the ones we get sometimes when feeding the birds - they are not large flowers. Black Oil Sunflower ... but I'm no expert.

I think the sweater will be lovely. The yellow is pale enough to be neutral, and it will look wonderful with your coloring.
