Expected modifications: I’ll likely lengthen the body and I’m unsure about sleeves, at least 3/4 length.
Actual modifications: lengthened body, knitted on hem to pair in with the body stripe patterning (more or less), long sleeves (with corrugated ribbing at cuff), hood
My measurements (inches): I’m 5’1” with a ~33” bust, 31.5” hip; 26” waist. 14” from my hip to armhole.
Yardage remaining: I used up nearly two entire skeins of MC, N8A. I only have just over 1g aka 4.25 yards (4m) of MC left! I have significantly more of the fade kit remaining… just over 95g or 415.25 yd (379.75m).
2023-01-22U — ends woven!
Ends woven, seams tidied. Gave it a light steam block with the iron. Need to make a drawstring for the hood but it’s completely wearable like this. Many things I’d do differently but I like it. The colors, fit, and design surprise me. Not where I normally gravitate.
2023-01-21 S — knitting complete
Didn’t hit my self imposed deadline of the 20th. I still need to figure out the cord for the hood and weave in all the ends. I probably could rework the hood so it’s tidier but I think it works.
2023-01-19 R — progress with coffee
Finally thought to bring this to minyan so i could knit during our coffee after. The minyainaires were fascinated. I have no idea why I rarely knit during this time. Probably because my EDC project socks are boring and I’m holding onto my cup of caffeine as a lifeline? 9a, I’m at 18cm so far.…

I absolutely love this sweater and want to make it. I’ll be talking to you as I dont think I have ever done anything quite like this. It was so nice to meet you yesterday. I am terrible with faces so don’t be hurt if I don’t recognize you next time I see you!
