It didn’t fit.
Like it REALLY didn’t fit. She couldn’t put her arms down. Seriously too small.
The annoying part is I knew it wasn’t going to fit but I kept knitting hoping that when it was all finished it would somehow grow and miraculously fit. It didn’t.
I thought about simply tearing it out. But I hadn’t blocked it. I’ve been putting it off. I don’t see the point. It’s SO small. I repeat – SHE CAN’T PUT HER ARMS DOWN.
There might be another thing too. I’ve already knit this sweater. It hurts me to tear it out and start again. It just doesn’t seem right.
And another thing… it’s now February. February means I’m no longer late with a Christmas gift… I’m starting early on next year.
So what do you think knitters? Any suggestions on other lace weight sweaters…. or other sweaters I could knit up with ease – I love top down.
What do you think Sista – any requests?
How do you gear up to re-knit a sweater? Can you do it? Or do you start again with something else?
