Notes

I’ve got the puffin yarn, but many people did this in mecha as well. Perhaps for the rest of my polar morn?

1-19: So glad I chose the Puffin! It really is perfect for this pattern and I have a feeling it’s going to fluff up when this is blocked. This is perfect tv or car knitting.

1-20: Finished this up between a car ride and some nighttime tv. The stitch pattern is interesting enough that this doesn’t get boring, but the yarn is bulky enough that it’s a quick knit. My Mom is going to love this if I can manage to take it off of my shoulders for long enough to block it.

1-22: I really can’t say enough about this pattern. It’s going to be perfect for my Mom, who is slightly smaller around the shoulders than I am. Can’t wait to run out at lunch and give it to her! I like this pattern so much that I’m going to knit it for myself in my beloved Debbie Bliss Cashmere that I’ve been hoarding.
