Notes

9/21/11 - Finished to try it on her this morning. (Still need to knit the i-cord waist tie.) I still love the yarn! I made the sleeves longer by simply continuing straight to where I wanted the cuff, then did “K1, K2tog” all the way around to reduce the cuff, then changed to smaller needles and edged it with three rows seed stitch and an Elizabeth Zimmerman sewn bind off. I’m very happy with this version! I also ran elastic thread around the neck because as usual, I made it a little too big for her.

Making her a nice fall sweater with the amazing Lana Bambu. I am so in love with this yarn and this color - I think I’ll need a sweater for me too. I’m going to put long sleeves and maybe a mock t-neck on this. We’ll see how it goes!
