5-19-17 - uploaded a photo to show that I have worn it - gah! I miss having Katie live close to take my FO photos!

4-25-17 - soaked again. and put it into the dryer on extra low for an hour (checking every 20 minutes) until it was damp dry. laid flat and let it dry completely. no stripe. whew! (and I think maybe the time in the dryer helped it soften up - the yarn feels great!)

4-24-17 - wove in the ends and wet-blocked. the yarn bled a lot. after drying, there was a darker stripe of color along the fold lines. ugh.

4-23-17 - done! worked 88 rounds total on the sleeves (a little longer than the pattern suggests).

4-16-17 - through 60 rounds of the first sleeve. (thinking I need to do about 88 total)

4-13-17 - redid the bindoff to be a little snugger. and then I started on the sleeves!

4-12-17 - bound off the body. did a plain knit wise bindoff, keeping the stitches kind of loose. it’s rolling a little, but I’m good with that - think it matches the cast-on edge.

3-29-17 - making good progress on the body - finished the first two eyelet rounds; setting aside to focus on the polka dot wrap.

3-27-17 - finished the yoke, tried it on - and it fits! onto the body now.

3-21-17 - cast on, worked through the short rows and the first few yoke rounds (and almost ready to move to a 24” circular).

3-20-17 - swatched … started out on 7’s and ended up with 5’s!
