Red Sweater :-)

...how easy was this jumper using Elizabeth Zimmermann's sweater percentage system?!...it feels really cool to knit something without a pattern :-)
It's basically three tubes, knit up to the underarms, which are then joined, and finished in one of about seven different shoulder/necklines (this of course, being the basic raglan). I added waist shaping and a crocheted edging, but other than that, it was pretty much to EZ's 'recipe' in her book, Knitting Workshop.

The true colour is the red in the full photo.

.... reckon I'm doing good with FO's this week :-D
