Notes

I love it! It turned out a little big but I don’t mind at all. I think I will be knitting more of these and one in a short sleeve version. The sweater actually weighed 240 grams but it took 5.5 skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed so my skeins must have been a bit short. I love the waist and sleeve shaping of this sweater. I love the neck line and the little tucks on the side. This is a really well written pattern and great layout. It’s easy to read and easy to follow.


Test knitting this. I’m really excited about this one…and it’s for me!

Provision Crochet Cast-on
Yarn Over Short Row

02/12/11 - Knitting done! I love it. It’s blocking now. I’m hoping I can get some pics tomorrow. The bottom curled terribly before I blocked it but lay flat without any coaxing after blocking.

02/11/11 - One sleeve done! I can’t wait to finish this. I’m hoping I can hammer out the second sleeve and be done by the end of the weekend.

02/08/11 - Last night I just finished the collar. My right wrist was hurting from knitting so much. Tonight I started the first sleeve and got down to the first sleeve decrease. I may have to knit another one of these in a short sleeve version. I just started my 5th ball of yarn.

02/06/11 - The body is done.

02/01/11 - I love this! I just finished the body increases and have another inch before separating for the sleeves. I can’t put it down because I just want it to be done so I can wear it!

01/31/11 - Made it thru the first set of sleeve increases. So far, so good!
