9/29/15: Haven’t had as much time to work on this as I would like, due to moving. I have finished the body of the sweater, and am six inches into the first sleeve. This is coming out so fuzzy and cute! It’s a little looser than I usually make my sweaters, but I think that’s good. When I started my first sleeve, I had only used 2 balls of Bare Hare (CC) and less than 2 balls of Capretta (MC).

10/21: More than halfway through my second sleeve. I am about to start my 4th ball of Bare Hare (CC) and am still only halfway through my 3rd ball of Capretta (MC). Lower arms feel a little snug, but hopefully they’ll ease up a bit in blocking.

10/26: Finished the seaming up yesterday and it’s blocking right now. I sewed the collars on with whipstitch from underneath the collar. I was worried a seam would make it kind of wonky. And this is actually still fairly wonky. I think the bottom of the collars should actually be wider to help them lay flat. I’ll probably tack them down like others did.
