May 14) Testing for cozy size 3T (my mannequin is 2t so it will look a little large in working photos) so far so good it is a well written pattern through the yoke and body area haven’t started sleeves or button band yet

May 15) both button bands done and one sleeve
* I did the button bands the way the pattern had it they are pretty that way but then I ripped one of them out (the pattern was fine I just wanted a different look so after I tested what the pattern read I changed mine a little bit)
I just wanted a different look for the one I was making so I put a button in the middle of each stripe (so I had knit 4 cast off 2 repeat through all the bands)
I sewed on 4 yellow mother of pearl buttons

I have tested all the parts of this sweater and they work out well and are well written and are correct in sizing. I will have to wait until Monday when I am at school in Science lab to measure the weight in ounces left in my two balls of wool so that I can figure out the yardage used.

The yardage counts are for how the pattern is written.

18) these do not count the addition of the collar I added that after measuring all the weights
