Notes

I knit a combo of the small & medium. C/O 144 sts as for Medium, but only worked 17 repeats as for a small. P/U 144 sts as for a small on the collar.

I have 3 full skeins of WotA plus about half of a 4th skein and 1 full skein of Shadow plus a small amount leftover from the used skein left.
The kit came with 10 skeins of WotA and 2 skeins of Shadow.

1/11/11 - just finished the bind-off on the collar…whew! now the cuffs and I’m done!!!

Love the thick/thin use of yarn and this is great TV knitting!

Oh man does this appeal to my teenage 80’s days - all that’s missing are those ginormous shoulder pads! LOVE it --- just waiting for my kit to arrive so I can C/O and flash back~ squeeee!
