sweater saga part 2: *those* directions

Reading directions must be an art form that I have yet to master. I’m to a certain point in the progress of the back of my sweater when I came to these instructions:

Honestly, I probably spent about 3 weeks fretting over the fact that my directions called for three colors of yarn to be used when I was only planning on using one. Jeesh!

Thankfully, I didn’t do anything to the work-in-progress until I had this little dilemma resolved. Here’s what the WIP looks like tonight:

Now I shall proceed with the shaping of the back. Wish me luck!
