Notes

3-2-16 - finished. and I LOVE it. photos coming soon (I hope).

2-29-16 - sleeves are still a bit small, but I think they’ll be ok since I’ve got chicken arms. started the seams Saturday and finished up this morning. wove in the ends and now all I have left is nine rows of ribbing, one more blocking and sewing on the buttons. I didn’t quite make it to finish by March 1…but I’m close!

2-25-16 - finished the sleeves yesterday and they seem small (!!!). decided to block before seaming. fingers crossed…

2-21-16 - finished both fronts, seamed to back and started the sleeves (two at a time).

2-19-16 - decided I could wear this one on chilly March and April mornings, so I pulled it back out.

2-7-16 - I didn’t bring this project with me to Florida and have decided to put it away until next fall. …so I’ll be able to wear it as soon as it’s finished!

1-10-16 - finished the back and decided to block it before proceeding. wouldn’t want to knit two fronts, two sleeves and sew it all together if it’s not gonna fit!

1-4-16 - got my wish! casting on for the size 38.

1-3-16 - waiting for my swatch to dry; hoping I get a slightly smaller gauge than the pattern calls for since I’m in between sizes. the yarn feels so nice and the knitting is really lightweight in spite of the big yarn/needles!
