Notes

Love this yarn and project—I was a bit worried when I finished knitting that it was too small, but true to my swatch gauge it washed and blocked to the right size and the cables stood out much more nicely.

This was a perfect project for me right now in my second trimester—no fitting needed (I’m not really inspired to knit any sweaters at the moment given I won’t have this big pregnant belly in a few months!), but the cables and stripes and lovely squishy yarn made it interesting enough to keep me going.

I can’t wait to knit more projects from this book! (Like the polka-dot Sweetness Pullover, but I won’t start that one until after baby arrives and I have my waist back).
