WIP Wednesday - Hope springs eternal
Yes, I am continuing on with the sweater - actually finished the body - and decided that maybe if I ripped back the sleeves and re-knit them a bit bigger I could get project to work for me.
The sleeve increase worked - but when I tried on the sweater, although it closes around my bust, it would need, as I said last week, aggressive blocking to close around my waist. Which is weird because my waist is much smaller than my bust.
Anyways - I am soldiering on - and will make the button band wider than stated in the pattern to see if I can still salvage it for me.
You see, I have fallen in love with the colour, and I really want this to work for me.I was concerned I wouldn't have enough yarn - I only had four balls - but I still have a whole skein untouched - so maybe...maybe, I could frog and re-knit if necessary.
There are those that would say to just frog now get it over with.
But hope does spring eternal, and as some would say this is 'how I roll'. (I actually hate that expression!)
Wish me luck!
