So I got a whole 4 rows of knitting done in the 2 hours I was at sbux yesterday. The conversation was just too interesting! Hahah! Anyway, I came home and finished up the body.
Let me tell you, there is a definite lack of instruction in this pattern. Not that I need line by line text, but trying to match up the lace and decrease and all that was just nitpicky. I ended up knitting an extra inch in the armholes, and if I didn't I'm pretty confident they wouldn't fit my arms. SO weird. The bulky yarn I guess. It is funny because I'm always complaining the armholes are too big. Well, serves me right!
The sleeves are knit flat, but I was considering knitting them in the round top down (therefore reading the instructions backwards). Except that I don't have any size 11 dpns. Whoops. I only have up to 10.5. I'll think of something. I could always magic loop, or 2 circs.
