Notes

Wow - love this! Photos are pre-washing, but I really like it! Sleeves are maybe a tad tight, but ok. Also was reluctant for the length, but I love how it is snug at the waist and also the yarn and colour is very nice! Again, Wendy Bernards designs fit very well for me- I think I will make further projects following her patterns, and I will also make further projects with that wonderful yarn!

WIP NOTES
My Christmas Knitting 2013 - started in the morning of boxingday. My gauge: 19 stitches x 27 rows, so just slightly off from pattern.
Casted on just 96 stitches as I wanted a higher neckline, will do longer Raglan increases until I reached final number of stitches.
Cabled without cabeling needle, using this picture tutorial.
Dec 29th
Separating sleeves from body when 64 stitches for each sleeve, after 6th row of cable pattern.
Dec 30th
Started waist ribbing, finished 4th ball of yarn.
Jan 3d

Jan 6th
Reached ribbing at first sleeve - decreased to 49 stitches, a bit on the tight side, so I increased back to 51 stitches.
Jan 7th
Finished knitting - now loooooads of Ends to weave in sighs Bought 30 mm Buttons, hope they will not be too big.
