Notes

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.

27-08-2017

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.

04-09-2017

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.

09-09-2017

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.

16-09-2017

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

01-10-2017

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).

21-10-2017

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

28-10-2017

Done … and worn immediately :)
