Notes

6-9-12 - photos added (thank you martha!) which means it’s officially finished! fit is good - about 32.5” at the bust, so it’s 1” negative ease.

6-6-12 - blocking. fit seems good. finishing was a pain (so many ends because the maggie is three strands). I didn’t like the backstitch bindoff suggested for the neck; instead I knitted one round and then bound off purlwise (so the bind off edge faces the inside).

5-30-12 - finished the waist shaping and have about 2 inches to go before separating at the underarms. worked M1s as M1L on the right sides and M1R on the left sides.

5-28-12 - started (over!!) this morning and I’m 30-some rounds into it. good so far….

5-26-12 - swatched and ready to cast on (tomorrow!) will be modifying the pattern to make it more like a 33” finished bust measurement (removing 8 stitches total - 1 from each edge and 2 across the back and front necks). penciled in new numbers and keeping my fingers crossed it works!
