3/30/09 - All done! Blocking now. I will d. stitch the stripes on here and there.

3/29/09 - I fixed the sleeve caps using this awesome tutorial. Just need to sew it up and fix the neckline.

3/28/09 - Oops! Sleeve caps too short. I took them out and will re-calculate how to make them come out right.

3/23/09 - started second sleeve on the treadmill today.

3/22/09 - One sleeve is a few rows short of being done. I ran out of Cash Iroha for the body!! rrrr…

3/15/19 - I added short rows for the bust, using this AWESOME tutorial! I think it really worked!

3/13/09 - Yarnplay II is back under way! I made enough money to buy the rest of the yarn. I might make little cap sleeves for summer, and then add long sleeves in the fall… We’ll see.

2/13/09 - I am thinking of switching colors of Cash Iroha to the raspberry we just got in. Hibernating until I make a little more money.

1/29/09 - ha HA! It is NOT too big! I was wrong! I just pulled out the armhole increases and I am FINE! WOOT!

1/27/09 - Aargh! It is too big. Start over!

1/25/09 - I started and finished the back panel last night! A 15” x 8” St st square.
Have to swatch the Cash Iroha, because I am switching to it after the armholes, and I think it will be a different gauge.

1/23/09 - Customizations:
square neckline
custom armholes
custom sleeve length (shorter sleeves)
body knit in the round, with shaping
custom body length (longer body)
awesomeness in every way (maximum)
yarn substitution: cash island for silk garden.
weight breakdown:
.3636 g/yd (cash island)
.4545 g/yd (silk garden)
hmmm - looks like a swatch is in order.
swatch: size 5’s: 5 sts/in (blocked).
