I have 2 skeins of Milky Way but might need to get a third in a complimentary colour for swatching and insurance. Maisie will probably want the sleeves full length.


Started swatching with 4.5 mm needles and the Sweetheart yarn so I know I’ll have every last bit of the Milkyway for the sweater.


Knitted a second swatch on 4.0 mm needles. Both swatches are currently blocking and I’m hoping I’ll be able to cast on this sweater once they are dry and measured.


Finally cast on this sweater yesterday and made some progress this morning. The yarn is nice to work with and the colourway is so much fun.


Finished the body and the right front this morning thanks to Miss Maisie sleeping in a little late.


Neckband and button bands done. Next up is sleeves. I’ll have to figure out how long I can make them with the yarn I have left (about 50g of each ball).


Finally picked up sleeve number 2 and about half way done. I’m working the sleeves full length and added an extra decrease round.


Done … and worn immediately :)
