The boring stuff:
Rainy Day Sweater from Miss Bea’s Rainy Day, size 1-2 years.
Knit in Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine, color 16 (lilac).
Bought 4 skeins (440m) and had yarn left over.
Pattern mods: Used US6 needles for the whole thing. Forget that 3 rows of seed stitch onUS3s stuff. Knitted the border first and picked up stitches, knit in the round to the armhole shaping. Completed front and back flat, seamed shoulder, knit collar, seamed other shoulder. Picked up stitches arounf armhole opening and knit sleeves in the round on two circs (following pattern in reverse).
Started knitting 7/23, finished knitting 8/1, finished seaming (lol) 8/5.
