Schooner to the Frog Pond

So. Schooner. Tried it on this morning, as I have a tiny little bit of finishing left to do, and I was getting pretty excited to have it to wear later this week.

Not. Flattering.

Not a little not flattering. Very, very much not flattering. This is tremendously disappointing, as I could really use it in my wardrobe, and was really ready to be done with it, so I can move on with my life.

Mom and I took a more detailed look, and determined that the back is fine, but the front is not. It is pretty much way too wide and baggy. If/when I reknit the front, I need to take it in by about an inch on each side and then also do a bit more shaping than is there. So I will take it apart and frog the front. Then I think it’s going into time out while I move on to something else, as least for a little bit.

So aggravated right now. Sorry to be so crabby. I promise I will be over it tomorrow.

How are your projects going? Well, I hope!

  1. Ouch! But on the bright side, you get to play with that yarn again. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

    I’m in a slight fallow period as I write up a design I just finished. There’s a mindless thing on my needles, but really I’m dreaming of something else right now. So many ideas that I can’t narrow things down yet. A little bit twitchy!

  2. Oh, so disappointing! I used to love it when my mom knit me a sweater because I am very long-waisted. She could add a few inches to the length of the sweater and get it to the perfect length for me. The yarn color is so pretty!

  3. Well, at least you are taking it in hand and redesigning and making good use of the yarn. If you are like me you finish it anyway and throw it in a drawer and forget about it. I have at least one sweater I need to pull out.
