Notes

January 28, 2016

Frogged this baby 3 times for silly mistakes. I wasn’t getting the 4th marker for w&t (count the beginning of the round as 1) and that messed me up twice and then when I finally got it right…I failed to switch to the larger needle. Fortunately, the ribbing is a different color from the body so I was able to frog back to the ribbing and hopefully the 3rd time is a charm and it’s smooth sailing from here on out.

Bindoff on the bottom should be a stretchy bindoff. I had the same issues with my Boothbay and should’ve thought about it. Considering taking the bindoff out and redoing it before blocking. It’s not so tight I can’t wear it but I’d prefer if it was looser.

Finished it, blocked it and put it on and realized I dropped a stitch at the bottom of the sleeve. AARGH. Oh well. Stitched it up and still love the color blocked look.
