Notes

3-17-17 - uploaded FO photos that my daughter took on Sunday. It was 40 degrees, windy and misting … perfect weather for the sweater, but maybe not so much for a photoshoot!

3-8-17 - done! the visible seams took me forever to get just right - but boy is it worth it! final bust measurement is about 37”, so that worked out well. I’m really loving the look of a little more ease and a little longer. Thanks, Amy!

2-15-17 - finished and blocked the front and everything still looks good. except the weather forecast - spring-like temperatures are making me want to knit something for spring, not winter!

2-11-17 - cast on last weekend with just a quick “how does the stitch look” swatch (do as I say, not as I do ;-) and knitted and blocked the back to really check my gauge. Happy to report it’s going to work fine. My stitch gauge is a little wide, so the 36” is going to be more like 37” - which will give me 3-1/2” of ease. On to the front!
