2-9-15 - done! I freaked out after seaming the sleeves that the sweater was going to be too small (the sleeves are really narrow!) - so I reblocked them and then had her try it on… fits great. Finished the seaming yesterday and weaving in the ends today. Note that the finished sweater weighs 300g, but I have 42 g leftover. I would definitely buy 7 skeins to knit this again.
2-1-15 - bound off the front. all I have to do is block and seam. (and yeah, I totally missed her birthday!)
1-20-15 - can’t seem to get motivated … and the end is so near. almost done with the first (of 7) cable repeats and then just a bit of ribbing and 4 seams. Katie’s birthday is a week from today. saying it here - I’m going to have it done by then!
1-10-15 - woot! sleeve #2 done and the front is begun. …starting to see the light…
1-8-15 - 2nd row of 2nd repeat on the 2nd sleeve…(starting to wonder if I really will have this done for Katie’s birthday on Jan 27?!)
1-2-15 - finished sleeve #1 (after a 5-day delay…because I didn’t want to wind another ball of yarn - ugh - and now I’ve lost momentum!)
12-22-14 - finished the back.
12-19-14 - still on the back, through 6 (of 7) repeats of the body cable charts.
12-8-14 - swatched chart C…got gauge and cast on!
