Notes

04-02-2016

Swatched on 2.75mm sunstruck, and 3.0mm hiya hiya’s. Fabric too dense.

3.25mm Karbonz, 38 sts = 6.75”, 17 rows = 2”

13-02-2016

On 3.0mm hiyahiya’s, 35 sts = 6”, 5.833 sts=1”
This is a better fabric.

Finished body, except for the back portion from armhole ledge up to shoulder straps. Transferred these back stitches from the ribbon to the needles this morning. This has been a very therapeutic knit during this stressful week.

Cast off the last cuff this morning! And now to block…. heavily… Nothing is really done until it is blocked.

27-03-2016

Blocked! All it needs is neck fastenings. Planning to get 3 small decorative snaps.
