Notes

8/12/10 - I decided to just follow the pattern as written and it seems like it will fit (just finishing the sleeves now.) But I don’t like this yarn. In a ball it was pretty, earthy. On me I fear it will look like camo. Ah well, my goal is to make a dent in my sad stash, so…

8/17/10- Finished it but don’t like what the Paintbox yarn does to this pattern. But I have a fix in mind. See blog post.

10/12/10- My husband was right, it did look kind of like a camo print toward the bottom. Frogged the bottom half and reknit using different balls at various points to keep the camo-like pattern from forming. This paintbox is a fantastic quality yarn, but not the best color for this project, hence the smiley face without teeth rating. But it’s a good fit and I’m making another with a more sedate color.
