12.22.09: Blocked & buttons added.

12.17.09: Cast off - just need to block and take pictures

Mods to pattern:
1) Knit full length sleeves
2) Decreased an extra 24 sts on final row before neck bind-off

1) Used one size smaller needle (US 5) for bind-off for tight bind off as called for in the pattern

12.06.09: Completed 80 rounds of stockinette on the sleeves, but I will continue for at least another 20 rounds. Sleeves end at just below the elbow, but I think I’d like these to be full length. I cast on with one less lace repeat (14 fewer stitches) as I did not want the flared cuff.

Knitting the sleeves two at a time on magic loop.

11.15.09: Cast on with size 7 needles and then switched to size 6 for the start of the first row. I am calling this cranberry mocha because the first time I saw the pattern, I read it as mocha cardi ( & immediately thought of Starbucks) and not moch cardi. I’m using a cranberry colorway, thus, the name cranberry mocha - yum!
