7/11/16 Washed and dried! I don’t love the yarn, but I had it on hand and it was right for the job. I do like the colors I chose together. Surprisingly, it softened up a lot after it was washed and dried. Also, the edge does curl a little less now! If I made it again, I would bind off a little tighter to avoid getting so much of a flare (I bound off very loosely…too loosely, as it turns out).

7/10/16 I finally put elastic in the waist today (I made it about 18” for her 20” waist). It needs a wash and then will be done. I’m hoping that if I hang it to dry the bottom edge won’t curl so much, but I’m not too optimistic as it’s acrylic. I think it will be cute anyway! It’s a little on the big side so I think it will fit my daughter this coming winter.

5/14/16 This is working up quickly. I’m not really sure about yardage…I think I must not have weighed the skeins when I entered them into my stash. The totals I’m coming up with so far aren’t making sense. I’ll be able to get the total yardage used once I’m done, but not accurate totals for each individual color.

4T. Needs 450 yds worsted. US7s. Due 5/1/16. Maybe use vanna’s choice and do stripes?
