Notes

The minute I saw this latest addition to Veera’s Garter Collection I had to knit it and NOW.

Saturday I bought the yarn and today I managed to buy a kit from another raveler and now the knitting can begin.

I CO 7 sts as I didn’t like the increases on the first row right after the co.

I try to knit the first 2 rows very loose.

Started over 1/21/2012 in the evening. the sides were too tight.

Trying the YO before first sts method to solve this issue.

Leftover:
MC - Mica - 45gr.
C1 - Logwood - 63gr.
C2 - Stovepipe - 41gr.

I didn’t weigh the yarn before I started but from the shawl weight I estimate each skein was around 114gr.
