Notes

11-02-15 - now that’s the kind of finishing I like! ends were easy and so were the seams. I used needlepoint thread for the seams.

11-01-15 - joined the shoulders and knit the neck. now the seams and ends…

10-31-15 - finished the front.

10-12-15 - 55 rows into the front (a little more than 1/3 of the body)

10-7-15 - almost done with the back - have four more rows before I start the shoulder shaping. I stopped slipping the edge stitches when I got to the part of the side that will be seamed (I don’t like seaming slipped stitches). Otherwise knitting as written….and loving it!

9-24-15 - shop newsletter hits again! glad we wanted a sample of this knit in the yarns it calls for…it’s a gorgeous combination! (and gives me something to knit while I wait for the Staccato to arrive to finish Inscribe).

the only modification was to knit the body about 2-1/2” longer than the pattern… I’m 5’6”, about 2” taller than the model on the pattern and I wanted it to look like that on me!
