Notes

Carol Sunday says that knitting this pullover is like reading a good book… she is SO right! I enjoyed every row, really, and almost regretted it when it was completed, although I wanted to finish it in time to wear it before the warmer weather comes.

While I was knitting the front I was afraid that the pullover would be too small and was tempted to start again with the next bigger size, but I kept on knitting and now I am happy that I did. I think this size is just right for me.

I only added about 5 cm in length and now I think that I should have made it even longer (I would have had more than enough yarn available). I think I can live with it, however the next time I wash the pullover I will let it dry on a hanger. Maybe it stretches a bit. Other than that I am really happy and I think that I will wear it very often.

I used some (for me) new techniques like the sewn bind off and the wrapless short rows. It is always fine to learn something new!
