Notes

5-4-16 - picking up those stitches took most of an afternoon and the piece seemed like a hot mess on that 32” circular…but a few body rounds in and it started to shape up. I worked 12 rounds with tar, then 6 with fog and then another 12 with tar and bound off. really happy with the size and that I used up nearly all the yarn!

4-28-16 - whew! ~550 rows of garter - ready to pickup stitches! (lightly stretched, the middle piece is about 74” long)

4-26-16 - have about 400 rows done on the middle section.

4-6-16 - oops! my waste yarn wasn’t long enough for 25 stitches…cast on 24.

4-5-16 - planning to make the center strip a little wider and longer so the finished piece is closer to 10x70. will cast on 25 st.

4-1-16 - will use Fog in the center with Tar as the border.
