7/21: Started Armande yesterday. The gauge of my yarn fits the one that is suggested. Up until now I didn’t have any problems with the instructions. Some people had a lot of problems, that’s why I paid special attention to it. I work the instructions that you can download here on ravelry, not the ones printed in knitty. This project is quite fun, I love how the pockets are made :) I am halfway through the lower body.

7/22: Currently working on waist shaping. I am going to work it twice to lengthen the cardigan. So I’ll need one more button.

7/23: Finished the waist!

7/26: I am working in the upper back right now. Think I found two small flaws in the pattern, but knitting has all in all been very easy and fun up until now!

7/29: Finished the body and the collar! Wuhu! :) Knitting is really fun and I didn’t have any troubles so far! Started the first sleeve :)

8/04: I am currently working on the second sleeve :) Aaaaand I’m finished! :-) I did not have any problems at all, I think the instructions are great :-)

I gave my annotations to Andi, they are:

  1. Waist for sizes XS,S and M: In the end there are 154 stitches left for size S according to the instructions. But there actually are 156 stitches left. Otherwise there won’t be 160 stitches after the first increase of the Upper Body. I counted and there are actually 156 stitches.

  2. Left Collar Shaping : At the end the reader is told to move on to the Right Front Shoulder for Sizes S and XS. It has to be the LEFT Front Shoulder I guess.

  3. Right Front Collar Shaping: the bold printed item: I think k2,p2 has to be done 3 times not 2 times
