2015/03/21 - My DW found some great buttons at JoAnn’s the other day. I sewed them on last night and soaked and blocked the sweater today. I managed to get Blueberry to try it on. It’s a little large, but she can grow into it. The buttons are super cute, even if they are made from coconut.

2015/03/01 - Wow, this just flies. I found myself joining the second ball in at about 1/3 down the body. I joined in the garter section under one of the armholes, which I think did a great job of keeping the join unnoticeable. Lots of knitting while watching TV allowed me to complete all but the last garter section and bind off so far. Seems to fit around Blueberry’s chest fine. I’ll double-check the length before binding off to decide if I want to add another stockinette/garter section at the end to increase length (I doubt I do).

2015/02/25 - With Blueberry’s ~23” chest circumference, I decided to cast on the largest size, 5. It’s hard to believe that she’s that big! I didn’t swatch, because I’m lazy. Hopefully it’ll be fine. If anything, I expect it to be big, and she can grow into it. I had several hours of TV knitting, and got through Row 30, the end of the garter yoke, just before the cap sleeves. I did follow the note on the Ravelry project page on the button rows to use K across to last 4 sts, K2TOG, YO, K2 so that it’s on the “correct” side for a girl.

Chest circumference: ~23”
Ball 1 start: 101g, end: 0g, used: 101g
