Bought yarn and needles in pfaffenhofen and started friday evening at the hotel room:)

26 stitches/10 cm gauge.

Color is difficult to capture. Picture with stitchmarkers the most accurate.

Started alternating skeins when seperating the arms. Alternated on the side under right arm.

10 rows 2x2 rib. 19 cm after pockets.

Binded Off with A 5 mm needle. Knitted rib on arms with 2.75mm and binded Off with 3.5

Have plenty yarn left from my 3 skeins. 37 grams.

August 2014. I got two large holes in my Still light! I am very fond of it, and did not think I could save it. My friend Nussi came for a visit and without her, I do not think it would have been saved. Frogged until the pockets, and reknitted it again. Now it’s like new. 20 cm from pockets and 20 rows ribbing. Had one extra skein turkis and used 37 grams from the first knit. Alternated skeins.

Yeeei. I can use my favourite still light again without large holes:):)
