Notes

04-02-2016

Swatched on 2.75mm sunstruck, and 3.0mm hiya hiya’s. Fabric too dense.

3.25mm Karbonz, 38 sts = 6.75”, 17 rows = 2”

13-02-2016

On 3.0mm hiyahiya’s, 35 sts = 6”, 5.833 sts=1”
This is a better fabric.

06-03-2016

Finished body, except for the back portion from armhole ledge up to shoulder straps. Transferred these back stitches from the ribbon to the needles this morning. This has been a very therapeutic knit during this stressful week.

Cast off the last cuff this morning! And now to block…. heavily… Nothing is really done until it is blocked.

27-03-2016

Blocked! All it needs is neck fastenings. Planning to get 3 small decorative snaps.
