The body is finished - bottom border is garter stitch. It fits, which is a wonderful thing.
I noticed when I was working the shoulder cables on the sleeves that the cable on one side had changed from a 6 stitch cable to a 4 stitch cable (from 3 twisted over 3 to 2 twisted over 2). Oops.
Okay, now it's really a sweatshirt suitable for gardening only. I'm not in the mood for ripping back the cable and fixing it. So far the lessons I've learned are:
1) Keep the needles with the project. If you need those needles for another project, then go buy them - or carefully pin a note to the project stating what size needles were used.
2) Take notes as you go. If you are doing a saddle shoulder with a cable, for God's sake write down the cable stitch so you don't forget what you are doing. (You might not be able to read the stitches in a dim room if the yarn is a dark color.) And write down various numbers like now many you cast on, what gauge you are got on the swatch, etc. It wouldn't hurt to write down measurements on a schematic of the project either.
Who knows, maybe I wrote all this stuff down and then "put it in a safe place", never to be found again.
