7/30/11--Done, and it fits! Need to wait for spouse to come home to take pics on me. The hanging shot will have to do for now. Vintage flowered buttons were purchased at Stitches South in April 2011.

7/28/11--Blocking now. (Yes, the lace problem was me.) It looks wonderful, and seems to fit well. Will take pics and model once the buttons get sewn on.

7/16/11--Have started on and ripped out the lace yoke three times now. The 1st row in the chart works out fine. The 3rd row never comes out right….I’ve checked for pattern corrections on the Verena site. No joy. And no one else making this pattern has mentioned any errata in the lace chart, so it must be me. sigh Will try one more time.

4/25/11--Decided to cable every 6th row as has been mentioned elsewhere. Works out better with this worsted weight yarn.

4/22/11--After swatching with worsted weight and size 8 needles, I decided making the L will work out to the XL I actually need.
