Notes

My first Sweater. Yarn showed up yesterday!

Did my gauge swatch, and it looks like I’m using 8s for the body. I don’t have 6’s so I cast on with my 5’s for the ribbing… I’m hoping it will still turn out ok.

2/7 - I’ve finished the back piece! I have also discovered this yarn color is tricky to photograph…

2/13 working on the front.

2/19 Front completed, started on my first sleeve.

2/28 Second Sleeve bound off. Time for seaming and the collar!

3/1 - Finished! Its symmetrical and it fits although a bit longer in the sleeves.
