Notes

Love it! Added length on bodice, abdomen and sleeves to accomodate my height… Otherwise, as written. And only JUST had enough yarn - less than 75g left of all the colours combined. Will weigh sweater after blocking to see what it comes to.

7/7/13 SWATCHED in front of Wimbledon final… On gauge… Casting on in the morning…

9/7/13 On to Cardinal band around bust… flying off the needles whilst hubbie away… :-)

17/7/13 Down to pocket flaps

27/7/13 Waistband done - onto the sleeves!

4/8/13 Second Sleeve syndrome beckons… Harrumph. UK heatwave means a mini hibernation until it’s cool enough to work with a massive jumper again…

11/8/13 WOOHOO. Blocking. And DONE.
