I got started on this earlier this spring once my wrist was healed and was making good time. But something was nagging me. I still had the charts, though there were a few spots where I wasn't sure (I had erased one colour and gone over with another and I couldn't tell which was the "real" colour), and I didn't have much info for between the charts, or the heel/toe. So I emailed Jason, the original client, and asked if it was possible to get one of his so I could make sure I had all the info. He was happy to drop it off and immediately I knew I was in trouble.
It was knit at a smaller gauge! Melissa's looked sloppy and loose all of a sudden. So...early July...I ripped it back to the top of the Merry Christmas banner! Ugh. I then focused all my attention on it and got it done in record time.
Connor's used 76gr and Melissa's used 74gr. I think Connor's had one more row in the red top edge. I couldn't get any of them to match the original cast on exactly.
