Notes

12/17/2012 So far, the pattern is good, but lacked ease information so deciding on a size was a bit tricky. I am crossing my fingers that the 40 inch will fit well based on another cardigan I own. The yarn is very rich and textured. A little too much for my taste at times. I also had a really random striped area apear for about half a skein’s worth of knitting even though the dye lot matched. I don’t think it’s horrible, but a little unusual for a yarn sold with dye lots.
