5/15 I separated for the arms. I’m finding that this project is making my hands hurt. The yarn doesn’t slide along the needles easily. Is it the silk? I’m having to do lots of pulling and tugging.

6/7 I just noticed I haven’t made any notes for this project!
Regarding the experience of my hands hurting, I think this was due to the increases for the raglan sleeves and the decreases/yarn overs for the pattern on the yoke. Once I split for the arms the stockinette body was a breeze to knit and I had no pain. As of today I have the body waiting on waste yarn. I want to finish the sleeves and neck to see how much yarn I have left to lengthen the body a bit.

6/12 Bound off. Now to weave in ends and wash.
