5/25/15 by the end of day three this project had flown off the needles. I am 3/4 of the way through the second skein and abt 11ā€ from the hem. I love the structure of the linen and look forward to seeing the end result.

progress via photos:
Photo one: prospective yarn choice.
Photo two: end of day one
Photo three: end of first skein. Evening of day two.
Photo four: end of day three.
Photo five: end of second skein. Day five.

Photo six: end of third skein (6/1/15 this is very odd because I calculated out needing just over six skeins. At this point I have just completed the back and will be picking up stitches in the front at the armholes.)

Photo seven:one more shoulder to go and then it looks like there is some finishing work around the arms and neckline. Iā€™m still deciding if I like it as is or will go ahead with the finishing work. (6/2/15)

I have only used about 3 1/4 skeins on this project. The stitch is loose and I love the look but in reading some notes by Purl Soho they suggested if using Euroflax (very similar to Sparrow) they would double up the yarn. I did not do this but I am satisfied with the weight and feel of the finished work.
