April 1st 2012:

  • Casting on for the smaller size, will have to check when I’m supposed to separate how I’m doing on gauge.
  • Did 6 rows of ribbing with the knits twisted to make up for the fact that I’m not using a smaller needle. Looking nice and sturdy. -The fabric with the alpacca yarn is knitting up very nicely.

Feb 12th 2013:
- Wow, didn’t realize I took such a long break on this. Picked up the sleeve and just tried it on with the sleeve almost reaching the elbow. It’s looking really, really nice!

Feb 18th 2013:
- Finished both sleeves, the second one took no time at all! I’m actually totally thrilled to have so much stockinette ahead of me, and just loving how the yarn is knitting up. Cuddlefest.

March 14th 2013:
-Trying to decide how long to make this before knitting a twisted rib and finishing it off. How much will it stretch in wear and wash? Hmm.. I think I’m very close now! Aiming for a finished length center front of about 20”.

March 19th 2013:

  • I could have made the sleeves a repeat longer to reach under my elbows, but the sweater has already loosened a bit after a handful of wears, so I think a light blocking might be all it needs.
  • All washed, blocked, woven ends, and finished! Very happy with this - it’s super super soft, and I didn’t even use all the yarn I had available either!
