Notes

3-30-18 - added a few FO shots - thanks to my daughter Sara for the photos from this VERY windy afternoon!

3-21-18 - wove in the ends and soaked. dried in the dryer on lowest setting for about 30 minutes, then laid flat (3-22 - it’s still pretty damp - might put it back in the dryer to speed things up!)

3-20-18 - finished the collar - those last 80 rows (and binding off the 304 stitches with JSSB didn’t go very fast ;-)

3-17-18 - through row 22 of the collar … I still have a good bit of yarn left, but I hope these next 80 rows go fast - I’m ready to finish!

3-7-18 - midway through the solid C section - boy, this goes fast! loving the fade :-)

3-4-18 - the weather forecast is looking more like winter than spring, so I’m going to cast on and see if I can either get a few wearings from a new sweater … or be the sure reason spring comes for good!

A = chestnut
B = stone
C = mona lisa
D = sand
(fading dark to light)

About the knitting:
worked 100 rows on the body (after the sleeve split before the ribbing)
worked 122 rounds on the sleeves before the fade; bound off with size 6 needle purl wise
for the collar, picked up 2 for 3 stitches along the fronts and ended up with 304 stitches (woohoo!)

I weighed my leftovers to calculate the amounts used … maybe someday I’ll remember to weigh the skeins before I start knitting!
