Yvonne's Version of "Zylie"

Check out this beauty!!! Yvonne, better known by her Ravelry handle "lavendersheep", finished her version of Sandy's Sweater for Zylie. She painted her own roving for her handspun too.  As anyone knows who has tried to change a colorway for a pattern, it isn't always that easy to balance a whole new set of colors and have them look the way you want. Yvonne did a lovely job of that here, toning the brilliant colors into a frosty pale version that still has plenty of punch. Great work, Yvonne. Thanks for finding the errata in the pattern too! This helps everyone.
