Notes

7/4/13 I wore this sweater every day when I went to Iceland in June! Project pictures 1 through 4 were taken there! Must go back next year!

1/12/13 Both sleeves started… the color blue is washed out in the top two photos; it’s a deep blue, really pretty.
1/17/13 Sleeves done, starting body… changed needle size to US 10.5. used about 1 skein for each sleeve
1/24/13 Body almost to armholes, used 2 skeins.
1/27/13 Eight rows into the yoke! To avoid too-tight floats I used a 32”cable length; got too crowded on the 24-inch cable. Bought another skein of the Pistachio colorway. Will use it for the neckline and don’t want to run short.
2/1/13 Put a notch in the upper neckband. Bound off neck using Jeny’s Stretchy Cast off which gives a nice blocky plush edge. Crocheted around the notch.
2/3 Kitchnered the armpits.
2/4 Washing, blocking.
2/5 wearing constantly… love!
