Notes

finished measurements - 35” bust, 9” armhole depth, 18-1/2” sleeve, 14-1/2” body. think the extra length accounts for extra yarn used vs. pattern suggestion. wish the pattern would’ve included a schematic - felt like I was winging it!

11-2-16 - finished the 2nd sleeve last night and wove in the ends and blocked today.

10-30-16 - finished the first sleeve and started the 2nd.

10-28-16 - the arrival of a new grandson happily interrupted my progress (4th photo from the bottom)…but I’m to the colorwork chart on the first sleeve and think I could finish this weekend. (of course we’re having another heatwave here in Atlanta - and it might be end of next week before I can actually wear the sweater anyway).

10-24-16 - tried it on - way too short to split the sleeves. worked an add’l 7 rows… seems good now.

10-23-16 - thanks to AsKatKnits for suggesting a fix to the seemlingly VERY SMALL neckline - I cast on 64, and started the body chart at row 4. added a row of plain stockinette after the chart, before the next set of increases.
