Notes

Double stranding the peer gynt

The one skein of the Cascade Eco + is just barely under the suggested yardage, so I’m hoping that I have enough. I’m also considering adding a ribbed collar to this sweater. We’ll see how it goes.

I love knitting things in the Eco. It’s so smooshy :)

Update:

Finished the back portion and am partway down the sleeves. I had to rework the chart to fit the sleeve. If anyone is interested, it can be found here.

Okay, the first sleeve is all done. I hope I have enough yarn left for the other sleeve. I’m also contemplating doing a bit of ribbing along the bottom of the shrug to make it just a little bit longer. We’ll see how the shrug looks when I try it on with two sleeves.

Update: Finished this while watching tv -- I’ll post pics of it soon.
