Notes

10.28.10: Divided arm & body today. Perfect amount of shaping to keep me from being bored, plus the yarn is making for lovely knitting. :)

11.5.10: Almost done with the body increases, then just SS for several inches.

11.11.10: CRAP. Row gauge is off by A LOT. Ripping, then going up a needle size. Bleck.
** Later **
Ripped back to divide for arms & body and am going to just do the math to figure out how to adjust my gauge difference for the rest of the increases for the pleat. Hope I still have enough yarn!

1.9.11: Picked back up again yesterday after 2 month hiatus for gift knitting. Just finished pleat increases (did every 5th row instead of every 4th) and am now working on SS for several inches.

1.16.11: Done! It just needs a nice bath & a fabulous button.

Further notes: Did hem & sleeve garter stitch for ~1.5” rather than 2” because I was worried about running out of yarn after having to adjust with extra rows for my gauge.
