Notes

I’m in love with this sweater!

The pattern is addictive and the yarn is fluffy, strong, and round all at the same time.

I schlepped this project across the country and around the globe! A good (though not lightweight) traveling companion, it accompanied me to NYC, Paris, and Tuscany.

I made a few mistakes along the way, fixing some and leaving some in (like an extra cable twist and forgetting a few short rows).

I think it may be a bit snug fitting, but I’m hoping that’ll resolve itself in blocking (fingers crossed).

(Psst… the images are mirrored because I took them with my computer webcam.)
