Happy 2013 guys!
I hope everyone's New Year was lovely!
I come bearing (slightly old) photos of something that is totally new to me. Admitting to a mistake.
Remember when I was working on that cardigan? Well, I finished it! And it's very lovely! But, well, it doesn't fit.
I had printed this pattern out around the time I started knitting, and since then, it's gotten a lot of revisions, and is now even published in a book, with lots of sizing differences. The one I printed out, very clearly wasn't made for a girl with...well boobs. I could get away with wearing it just fine, but there are a couple more problems with it.
The shoulder fit bugs me to no end. It's really tight no matter what sort of top I wear with it. If I wear a sleeveless, it's fine, but still tight. And I like being able to move my arms.
The back is actually pretty comfy. When it gets to the part under the ribbing, is where it's all wonky with curling back on itself.
Though, it shapes nicely with my sway back, which is always a good thing. But I'm not too pleased with the cardigan, sadly. (Look at that face, this is the face of a tinyangrycrafter! Ok, I was actually smirking at the neighbor kids)
I'm planning to unravel it, and making something else. Maybe a pullover? Or perhaps a vest?
Have any of you guys happened across any self made objects you weren't fond of?
