I’m adding buttonholes; besides that I’m doing the pattern as written, trying on for fit as I go.


So far my colors are:
Elation> Impulse> Vitalize> Whimsy> Delight> Inspired and then I’m planning on Rooted> Untamed> Savvy> Harmonious

I used the full skeins of the first 2 colors, and then I started saving partial skeins of the rest to use on the sleeves.


I’ve now added Rooted (for a short stripe) and Untamed (will do this for a wide stripe). It’s fitting well! Not sure how long I’ll make it, we’ll see.


Finished it last night!! It’s drying now. It’s huge and thick, so it’ll be dry and ready to photograph hopefully in a couple of days.

It’s LONG! I kept going so I could get through all the colors I wanted to use. I still only got through the main 9; I had 2 more just in case and definitely didn’t need them!

Since it’s so long… I MIGHT decide to add patch pockets! We’ll see.

Oh and, in a previous note I said I was following the pattern as written (except for buttonholes) but I forgot I also skipped the waist shaping.

Oops I marked it as finished, but I still have to add buttons! Also, possible pockets… but the main knitting is finished, and I might wear it to work on Monday without either of those things ;)


The final colors used are:

Delight (Tonal)
Rooted (Tonal)
Savvy (Tonal)

When I switched to a new color, I worked the first row/round K1, Sl1 so the stripes are a bit blendy.
