Notes

9/30/15 Post-blocking measurements are about 38” x 65”!!! Thanks to my mom for modelling :)

9/29/15 Done and blocked! It definitely grew a lot, which is what I was hoping for. I will measure and photograph soon.

9/28/15 Pre-blocking measurements are roughly 30” x 53”.

9/27/15 I’m finally getting around to weaving in the ends--about halfway through so far. It’s super tedious, especially the pink for the mesh lace parts.

8/3/15 Cast off! I have to weave in ends and block. I am hoping that it grows a good bit with blocking as I’d like it to be a little larger. Otherwise, I love it!

7/25/15 Making decent progress. Only mod so far (and probably the only one I will make) is carrying the yarn up the side for the striped sections instead of breaking it between each stripe, as recommended by the designer in the forums. If I had that many ends to weave in, I would just fringe the damn thing! Ha.

7/23/15 Cast on. The colors in the second to last pic aren’t right, but it’s at least an idea.
