Notes

6-22-18 - added FO photos from Sara’s apartment.

6-12-18 - and done! I bound off with K2togTBL and it works great - nice edge that’s just flexible enough. finished size ~ 45”x60” (!!!). I washed - delicate in a lingerie bag and dried - extra low for 40 minutes, then laid flat - and the yarn softened up nicely.

5-23-18 - well into section 3 - checked my calculations for the MC when I joined ball #4 and I think I’ll be fine so whew! wish I could get ahead of my 5 repeat/day pace, but at least I’m confident I’ll finish before I see Sara next month.

5-16-18 - section 1 ~ 11” long (30 repeats) - super happy to be done with all the weighing and calculations … and moving on to color 2!

5-14-18 - just finished the first skein of Twill (110 g skein). piece measures about 8”. In total, I have 781 g of Twill, so I’m planning to knit each section using 155 g … finished size might be a little longer than the pattern’s 53.75”, but I think that’ll be good!

using Twill for MC and Bing gradient for the CC. Since my yarn is DK, I’m going up to a size 6 needle and casting on only 241 (instead of 273) stitches.

starting weight
Twill = 110, 111, 111, 111, 112, 112, 114 g
Bing 01 = 112 g
Bing 02 = 111 g
