I’m so excited 🙂 I am halfway through the second sleeve, so in 7 repeats time, the jacket will be finished!
I did loads on it at the weekend. I finished the first sleeve, and lacking the will to start on the second (seeing as the first took me a week) I did the front panels and edging. I did 3 rows for the front panel, instead of 4, as I wanted to make it a bit wider to ensure it fits. Which, I’m incredibly happy to say, it does. So I started sleeve 2 on Sunday night and between time at home and commuting, it’s half done.
Why 14 repeats instead of 12? Well I added an extra 2 repeats to the body, and my gauge has continued to be slightly off for the arms, so I’ve added an extra 2 repeats there as well. If it comes out too long after blocking I can rip out a row or so. But I shouldn’t need.
Was so excited getting the body done – really makes it look finished and it was great to be able to try it on properly. No pics unfortunately as I didn’t take any at the weekend and I’m at work now, so you’ll just have to wait for pics before and after blocking. But here are some photos I did after adding the back rows – before I started on the arms:
First proper garment! Yay! Can’t wait to be able to wear it out next week.
