Notes

Planning & Starting in April:

blue changing project.

Have difficulties to measure the gauge - can have 9-12 stitches per 10cm, depending on the way to hold/laydown.
Decide to calculate with 11 st.

Go with size L to really get enough positive ease.

In fact the knitting is not much fun up to now. I started with the lace ball and my needle is turning while I knit, so I have to rearrange and sort quite often.

Update August:

In fact I do not knit a lot nowadays, but I still go to knitting meet ups which help the sweater to grow snail-paced :)

The difference between the lace and sockyarn type is not seen, If I would knit it again, I would choose only 1 type of yarn - the sockýarn is probably better.

For arm:
. cuff: I use 3.5mm needles and decreased 25% (k2, k2tog) and choose a one layer k1, p1 cuff.
. cuff: both arms have different coloured cuffs

Finishing, September:

I made it - finished before I travel to Wollfest Hamburg - it was still slightly wet in my backpack, but ready to wear on Saturday :)

The silky cuff at bottom is a bit too loose, after some time it slipped from time to time over my Jeans. Maybe I insert an additional elastic strap - will be decided after next washing & wearing.

The arms are slidely to wide for me, but the loose feeling at the body is great!
