Notes

7/5/12- Finished, and more contextual photos coming soon! Mock-cables are a success, the back is actually ribbed so it will look nice no matter what side is showing. I am working on the Ferguson Cowl so the cables come from there.

7/1/12 - ARMS. SO. TIRED. Well, after a year and a month, I have picked back up my heavy needles and restarted. It’s looking really good but I’m at the point where I do a row and set it down for a few minutes, because the blanket makes the needles so much heavier. Just keep going, keep going!


5/14/11 - Felting done! Now it’s all hanging up to dry. It looks a little flat, so hopefully I can fluff it into a more cylindrical shape before I knit it.

5/11/11 - Got my needle tips :) They’ve been 3D printed.

5/2/11 - Roving came, excited to start heckyes heckyes.
