2012/1/3 -- Gauge was too tight and had to frog the body to the bottom ribbing. Would like to get it done within a year of the start date…fingers crossed.

2013/05/21 -- Cast on fewer stitches for the sleeves, but wanted to have the same number of stitches for the yoke area, so I spaced out the decreases on the first decrease row to end with the number of stitches for the small size.

2013/06/03 -- Woohoo on to the button bands! Knitting them with the smaller needle per advice of others who have completed the pattern.

2013/06/10 -- Decided I did not like garter stitch button bands and went with an attached i-cord a la the Northmavine Hoody.
