Happy New Year, everyone! I’m pretty excited about 2009, I have to say. Why’s that?

Because I’ve declared 2009 to be the Year of Yokes!

This year, I’m hoping to knit up all of the yoked sweaters for which I have yarn in my stash. It’s a rather large number (if you’re on Ravelry, you can see my list of such sweaters here). I thought it might be fun to see if anyone else wanted to join me, and so I created this blog as a place for us Yoke Appreciating folks to write about knitting the sweaters we love so much. So whether you’re just thinking of making a yoked sweater, or you’re planning to knit an insane number of them like me, I invite you to join us here! I’ve posted a note about how to request an invitation to blog here, under the “About” tab at the top of the page.

This is my first time moderating a group blog, so you may have to cut me a bit of slack the first few weeks while I figure out what I’m doing. But I do hope you’ll join me here!

Oh, and a note: if any of you have better graphics-creating skills than I have, feel free to make us a better looking header!

Happy Yoke-ing, everyone!
