Notes

For NaKniSunSweMo in the Sundara Lovers group.

Had a torrid time at the beginning - had to frog twice as I’d managed to twist it twice (did I even mention how much I hate working on circs) but I’ve finished the bottom cuff and am now ploughing through the lace quite nicely.

I’ve ended up knitting the Medium to start with but I going to see if I can do the bust increases twice or something to accommodate humungous boobage.

11th November Just finished the first skein, the waist decreases and the first set of bust increases. Am going to do another set of bust increases to take from a size medium round the waist to a size large on top.

I had trouble with the waist decreases as they really need focus, but the pattern is very clever and it all works out beautifully.

24th November Just finishing skein two. The big news is that I’m off the dreaded circs and onto straights for the neck, so going much faster. I did start doing another set of increases for the bust, but ripped them out in the end as it seemed so big when I tried it on (the ASM is S-T-R-E-T-C-H-Y). So I’m knitting the M as written (which is probably akin to an L because I’m using an aranweight yarn).

16th October 2011 I thought I’d rephotograph this after losing 30lbs this year. Still 12lbs to go, but these pics are making me SO happy!
