Notes and mods on my blog.

Oct 2- After re-knitting the body with the appropriate number of stitches, the owls were fun and easy to knit up.

Sept 24- realized I had cast on 4 sts too few (I guess leaving off an increase to create 4 fewer sts was on my mind when I started), so when I added the 4 sts with the sleeves, my st count was all off for the owl pattern. Why do I do these things? So I ripped out the body and am re-knitting (again.)

Sept 14- I did decreases and increases at the side. I ripped it out though to knit over with about 3 inches of stockinette before starting the increases. You can see both versions in photos.
I followed another knitters example and left off one increase (4 stitches) to add to the sleeves (2 on each) immediately after the ribbing, for a little more room.
I’m also going to hold off on sleeve increases until I’m a bit further up the arm to ensure a good fit in forearm.

Sept 12- Putting together a list of possible mods I might make after sifting through other knitter’s projects. I’m pretty sure I will do shaping at the sides and add stockinette rows at sleeves to give more room in armpits. I may also make the neckline a little higher.
