9/3/11 - This is knit top-down; may be easier to start with a 16” needle.
9/4/11 - Finished yoke tonight. The sleeve increases for size M are made in the lace pattern, every third row, and the chart does not account for the increases so you’ve got to knit those in stockinette, then switch to the chart. Involves a bit of concentration and counting, but still, fairly easy to stay on track.
9/10/11 - Have finished body decreases and hope to finish body by this evening. I tried the sweater on a couple days ago and it’s a tad bit looser around the bust than I’d like, but I wasn’t wearing a bra, which I think will help. :-)
9/12/11 - Body is finished. I bound off with the crochet hook, but it was very tight so I unpicked and used this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ibn-01Ilxpg to learn a sewn bind off (very easy). Much stretchier, but not pretty. All that’s left are the sleeves.
9/16/11 - Finished but haven’t had time to photograph. Plus, cats got on it while it was blocking and had to fix pulls. Grrrr.
