Meh on the First Sweater
Now that it’s done, I’m glad I made this sweater first. I’m not crazy about the yarn anymore. I still like the idea of the sleeves, but I don’t like how high the neck line is. The problem is that my shoulders are kind of wide, so after knitting over the bust I should have increased so I had an extra inch or two. The way it turned out, the sleeves pull up on my shoulders and I think it just looks kind of silly instead of a gently puffed sleeve. Part of me wants to rip off the top and redo it, but a much bigger part of me would be happier giving it to someone who would fit into it better. I’m blocking it now just to see if that helps. I can’t imagine how short this would have been being 2″ shorter in he body!
