Notes

8-Nov-13 Picked up again after a massive hiatius.

9-Nov-13 Cast on skein 3 today and am 1.5” under the arm.

10-Nov-13 Started skein 4 today. I’ve had to adjust the lower increases because I’m crazy short and instead of doing the increase round every 2” I’ll be doing it every 1”. I only have a couple of inches left before I start the lower ribbing.

20-Nov-13 Finished the main body piece last night. Measures 14” all up. Guess I’m a lot shorter then I thought lol. I am starting the sleeves next though I don’t have size 6 DPNs so I’ll be trying the magic loop and if that doesn’t work I’ll do the button band.

29-Dec-13 Finished my first arm. Think I made it a little short. I stopped at 7 decrease rounds then did 2 rounds and a decrease twice, then 3 inch 2x2 knit purl.

30-Dec-13 Started my 6th ball tonight and have made the second sleeve longer and am now just finishing off the 3 inch band. I am going to go back and lengthen the other side when I finish. Only have the button bands to go after this SOOOOO CLOSE!!!

3-Jan-14 So after some issues with the button band I am finally FINISHED. WHOO. YEAH.

Other notes:
Buttons are 1” and from Buttonalia on Etsy.
I used DMC 839 to sew the buttons on.
