As I’ve recently discovered, the sweater I just knitted is too small.
If you’re not a knitter, or don’t make … furniture, or … babies, then you don’t understand what this means. I’ve just spent hours upon hours of my time deciphering a pattern and fixing mistakes to make a perfect sweater. See, this sweater was worth ripping back yards and yards of yarn for a tiny mistake, because I love it. I have a tendency to give away the things I make (I hope you’re enjoying those mittens, Vivek!) so this was going to be the first thing for myself.
Here is the sweater, in it’s perfectly perfect completed form:
See my forlorned face? See the cuffs? I’m not wearing anything underneath (hee) and it barely fits my torso.
So. I’ve contacted the Rogue community (I’m being serious) and asked for advice. I think I’m going to take Rogue I around with me tomorrow and see if I can’t find a more appropriately sized model. I’m hoping someone will give me fifty American dollars for it. That would recoup the cost of yarn (and I will build a new death star, oh yes). Rogue II will be even better. I plan on knitting the sleeves IN THE ROUND.
Did I just blow your mind?
