Notes

7/1: I bought this pattern and yarn last summer and it’s been sitting around since, finally getting into it. I hope I can finish this summer so I can wear it!

Using sizes 6 12” circ., size 6 24” circ., and size 4 26” circ.

My two skeins are of different dye lots and there is a noticeable difference, so I’m alternating b/t them every 3-4 rows. Note to self: this is an annoying hassle, not doing it again.

9/4: I’ve worked on this off and on all summer… it’s taking me for-ever!

10/6: Finished! Finally!! Now that summer is over ha ha!

Used every bit of the 2 skeins, the provisional CO allowed me to make the sleeves the perfect length.

Blocking eliminated the curling at the edges for the most part which I really like. Did 4 rows of garter st. at bottom edge before BO, and the same on the sleeves.
