Notes

2-2-18 - so honored to have been part of this test - the pattern is awesome and I LOVE the sweater!!

1-28-18 - bound off the 2nd sleeve this morning (saving the last bit of finishing for tomorrow :-) sleeves = 92 rounds stockinette (decreased every 10 rows down to 52 stitches) + 17 rounds ribbing. bound off with size 4 needle and regular tension. need to see how it blocks, but hoping the sleeves measure ~ 15”

1-24-18 - finished the body and started the first sleeve. body = 90 rounds stockinette plus 17 rounds of ribbing. bound off with a size 6 needle and regular tension which worked great.

1-18-18 - through round 61 …

1-16-18 - cruising along… working the body decreases as written; just did the 2nd set of decreases.

1-9-18 - so far so good! the 5” of 1x1 ribbing took all my knitting time yesterday. Today I started the yoke - I’m almost halfway through the increases.

1-8-18 - excited to be testing for Heidi! (and using stash yarn :-) row gauge is a smidge loose, but stitch gauge is dead on.

yarn used:
linen - 45 g + 48 g + 50(? forgot to weigh!) g + 48 g + 27 g
SC - 24 g + 26 g + 25 g + 3 g
(each sleeve used ~ 27/28 g linen and 10 g SC)
