Notes

need to buy the alpaca yarn - done

08-04-2019

The dimensions are exactly from the pattern - good! But I’m short for a 2XL - bad! So, I hope, overall, the cardigan is not way too long.
The fabric is pretty light and fluffy. A little too “holy” for my taste but I’ll take what I get.
Plan to block first before sewing since the fabric is very curly. I will pin each piece down to dimensions and spray with warm water and wait to dry, this should do the blocking.

Almost done! Knitting finished and blocked. Need to sew.
