STOP PRESS. KNITTING CRISIS! KNITTING CRISIS!
OVERSIZED GARMENT. FINISHED PROJECT NOT FINISHED AFTER ALL.
I'm really growing to enjoy these weekly Yarn Along posts. While there's a bit of a theme developing around the topic of my knitting stuff-ups, it's good to have something that keeps me on task with the needles. Goodness knows, my productivity there waxes and wanes like the tide. And just when I thought I had a lovely finished project to report, pattern grief has struck again. The peachy-pink cardigan, all soft and pretty and girly, was meant for my littles. I knit the 18-month size. Gauge was almost spot-on. I'm almost entirely convinced I didn't misread the pattern. Yet the neckline is enormous. Enormous! I could fit both the twins in it together, side by side. Imagine the screaming! "Mine!" "No, mine!" "I do!" "No, I do." So, on a whim, I tried it on big sis and wouldn't you know? The perfect fit. Except that on her it's an itsy-bitsy crop-top.
So I've ripped out the hem and I'm lengthening it. I'm hoping the wool I have left will be enough. If not, I'm open to another yarn purchase. I'm always open to another yarn purchase, yes, indeed.
STOP PRESS. KNITTING CRISIS AVERTED. FOR NOW.
Note to self - if I ever need to make a doll with curly hair, I'll knit something, wash it, dry it then rip it out. Perfect corkscrews.
