Notes

Hoping beyond hope to be on gauge with this knit. Since it’s top-down, I’m just going to start in and measure when I have a few inches. If I’m off, I’ll try again.

As of the start date, I have chosen my yarns (I’m using 5 colors!) and I will also play with the stripes as I go. Can’t wait to see what happens…

Because of the continuing stripes, I have decided against pockets. If I miss them, I can always go in and steek, right? lol!

I agonized over possibly running out of the blue (which I would have done if I had not “stretched” it with some more grey stripes), but was able to knit the hem ribbing all in blue…yay!

01/19/17 - I’ve wound the gray and the multi-gray, and I cast on last night. Barely started into the short-row section before going to bed, but it’s knit-night tonight!

1/22/17 - starting color 3!

1/26/17 - started color 4!!!

2/16/17 - Bound off Hem!!!!!

2/20/17 - Bound off second sleeve!
