Notes

20121119- gifted to teabird. i never wear it.

20100730- 18g leftover (started with 97g) just need to figure out what degree a soft silky cotton can be blocked (to reduce curl) but I love. oh and to find the perfect pin. (i have a plan)
20100728- on the decreases! hope I estimated weight:yardage properly! I’m 2.5 repeats from finding out.
20100726- after a nice dental visit (we have the start of a crown!) I’ve finished 11 straight repeats. strangly 44g remain. thinking of doing an extra 3 straight to make it longer, is quite short, 1 leaf ~ 2in, 18 leaves = 36in and 21 leaves = 42. i like 42 (and 36), but let’s aim for that answer. will be easier to wrap around one’s neck!
20100723- finished 8 repeats. have 55 g remaining. misjudged this one. ;)
20100720- 3 increase repeats = ~ 10g; 1 straight repeat = 5g. estimation of 12 straight is possible (goal: longer & skinnier than wider & shorter)
20100719- not 100% sure on yardage but current plan is to go short with the increases, k straight until 47g left (ball was 2g short and that allows wiggle room) then k the second half. not sure why this combo is currently speaking but it is. sometimes the yarn surprises you.
