Notes

Using 5.0mm Kollage circs and the yarn that my grandparents brought back from Hungary for me!

after 33rd inc repeat 23g left.
after 34th inc repeat 19g left
will do two more increase repeats and then weight and probably start decreases…don’t want to run out of yarn like I did with the saroyan.
after 35th repeat 14g left.
definately think I’m only going to do one more increase repeat….but will still weigh to see if I can stick another one on there!
after 36th repeat 10g left….I must be knitting tighter…but I’m going to do one more repeat of the increast section and then start the decreases….want to use as much of the yarn as possible!
aug 24 - 13 decrease repeats in and I’m getting a little nervous that I’m not going to have enough yarn…oh well, all I can do is keep going and cross my fingers.
aug 30 - done with TONS of yarn left over…I have no idea how that happened when I did the same number of repeats decreasing as I did increasing, but oh well…it’s soaking now and I will pin it out later today!
