Notes

Bestilt garn 12/6-11 fra www.louet.com
Garnpris: $ 199,60 ( $24.95 pr.hespe)

Nest største str. i mønster. Viser seg å være for stor. Note to self: ta mål og legg arbeid i å få plagg passe store heretter…

Garnet er overhodet ikke vanskelig å strikke med. Litt stivt til å begynne med, men så venner man seg til det.
Yarn feels quite nice to knit. Not at all as rigid/hard as I had imagined. A bit “stiff” to start with, then I got used to it. Happy :-)

Summer 2014:Two years! This evening, I bound off the last st (not counting the neck band). Next: blocking etc. This week end, perhaps?

August 22. 2014: Three years… Today I bound off (3 needle bind off) both shoulders, and plan to knit rest of the neck band this week end, in between all my other tasks and a party. I notice that I hadn’t quite grasped the ‘wrap and turn’-method when I knit the front parts, so it isn’t as nice looking as it should. Oh well!+

October 6. 2014, At last! Last stitches made this evening, the jacket has had a round in washing machine, and now the tumble dryer. The sleeves seemed a bit odd at the shoulders, hope dryer will take care of that.
-and it did. Steam iron, anyway :)

The buttons I have purchased are too large.

24.06.2016

Tried it on for the x-th time yesterday. It is far too large , and I look (and feel) like a walrus wearing it. Plan: deconstruct and rip down. Then, knit it again in a smaller size with some negative ease. The yarn is far too beautiful (and expensive) to just lie there unused.
