This is going to be a well documented sweater:)
LOL:) But man, I made a lot of progress last night! A few things: (1) I'm doing stripes to make my way through stash rather than buying a sh*tload of new yarn, (2) I'm slipping the first stitch of every row - because it'll be easier to pick up stitches for the button band and it will look nicer on the side where we won't have a button band (did not realize that part because it's not in the picture and Karen F pointed that out to me yesterday (DOH!!!); and (3) whenever possible USE CIRCULAR NEEDLES (ahhhh that's better:)).
More variations of pink on their way. It's a fun pattern:) even if I have messed with its head....
PS - Stitch count is now down to 352 - gauge measurement was a bit off the other night/with straight needles. (when have i ever been straight?)
PPS - yarns are either linen (green) or cotton (pinks/neutral). Am hoping the linen part looks better after washing.
Have a nice day,
