Notes

Refer to bookmarks for eliminating garter striping. Sweet Mama knitted Section 1 in plain stockinette.

The Ivy (lighter color) weighed in at 112 grams. The Moss weighed in at 115 grams. TLE has the skeins listed at 110 grams and Ravelry has the skeins listed at 114 grams. If possible, I’m going to attempt adding length at the end.

July 6, 2011. There is barely any of the Ivy left. I’m very glad I eliminated the striping in lieu of plain stockinette with the Moss. I still have a lot of the Moss remaining, so I’m adding two extra rows of stockinette at the end of Chart 2 before I begin the garter stitch border.

July 7, 2011 - I ran out of Moss. I had to rip back the bind off a few inches and rebind off a little bit tighter. After three tries, I finally had about an inch and a half of tail left, enough to weave in.
