Notes

09.12.09: Blocking

09.09.09: It’s my birthday, and to celebrate, I cast off Miss Honeychurch! Still need to block it and then I will post pictures.

09.03.09: 1st sleeve almost complete.

08.27.09: I’m back to about where I was before I frogged.

08.20.09: Frogged and re-cast on last night.

08.19.09: say goodbye…
I have decided to frog & start over. I LOVE the drape of the hemp fabric so I want my sweater to have a little more drape when worn. Right now, there is too much negative ease so I am going to go up a size and hopefully gain some more drape. My gauge swatch turned out to be a whole lot looser than my actual knitting (I didn’t intend to have any negative ease) so to the frog pond I go…

08.14.09: forgot to mention - I was inspired to knit this from Chrissy (The Manic Purl). She’s hosting a KAL.

08.13.09: about 6 rows away before marking for sleeves; UPDATE I have divided for the sleeves!

08.06.09: will hopefully begin swatching tonight
