Notes

My poor photos can not accurately convey the gorgeousness of this yarn. The Heritage Hand Painted in the “Thunder” colorway is bee-u-tee-full! I am kind of hoping my son will not like this so I can keep it for myself!! ;-)

--11/17/09 My Daybreak seems to be turning out long from top to bottom, but not side to side. I have cast on for the medium and knitted through 12 stripes of color B. It is already a generous 13 inches (unstretched) top to bottom, but only about 45 (stretched) side to side. I am hoping all will be well since 13 is close to 75% of the supposed 17 inch finished length size and 45 is 75% of the supposed 60 inch finished wingspan size.

--Blocked to almost exactly the 18 x 60 inches it was supposed to be. I really, really like it! Noah did too, but preferred to have a rectangle scarf in earth-tones. YIPPEE! I get to keep it!!
