Yeah, I think I’m finished with this sweater. Finished for good.
I wanted a black sweater because I love black and it’s a great neutral. A couple of years ago I made this:
Looks good on the dress form doesn’t it. If only it looked that good on me. That’s my smaller dress form from back in the day. Back in the day before I had babes. It’s so not a good representation of how it looks on me. It was a horrible fit. Too big in places and the ties cut in the wrong spots. FROG.
I didn’t frog it all the way. Just enough to start working it back down into a different sweater that doesn’t wrap. Which I decided would be best as a shrug/bolero creature.
I don’t know what I was looking at, I assure you, I wasn’t trying to look regal or anything. Maybe I was tring to distract you from the PJ’s. It was Sunday moring and I was still in my yoga pants and fluffy sheep slippers…..ok, full disclosure, I never got out of my PJ’s yesterday.
I’m thinking that I need to rip this as well. It’s too big across the back. I looked back (when I looked up the photos) and I had originally made it in 2006 when I was at my largest size in the past 10 years or so. Now that I think about it, other than pregnancy size, that was the largest, I’ve ever been. I got smaller and I’m shrinking more now so I’m thinking that I need to just ball up the yarn, all of it, and put it on the back burner. Or just make a small size sweater now and make sure I lose the last 20 to make it work…..
