Notes

9/19 Done! did sleeves flat & single crocheted them up like a another ravelry - so helpful! I’m not thrilled with the sleeves, like the Salem Hoodie, they are straight and floppy, not like the picture shows. did the last inch with size 4

Blocking now, and will sew on buttons when dry.

9/12 okay, I cannot stand to do these sleeves in garter in the round. I’m knitting these suckers flat or I’ll never finish them.

9/9 finished the body starting the sleeves.

8/29 split the sleeves off, finally. I forget, coming from a project where I used bulky yarn & size 9 needles how freaking long it takes, especially with over 350 stitches per row.

8/21 swatched & got perfect gauge with Capra - I’m excited! I love this yarn, especially this color and this seems like an easy project. I want to finish by the time I go on Seattle holiday at the end of the month.
