Mkay, so I sewed up the sweater jacket last night – woo hoo! But I still have to take care of all of those extra strings – you can’t just cut them off, they have to be woven in. So I’m not quite finished yet. But it looks pretty darn cute on the dressform, right?
Here’s the thing though – I’m rather petite and um, this looks ridiculous on me. ARGH! I hate knitting! I spent hours upon hours knitting this damn thing and only now do I know that I can’t wear it. It’s just way too overwhelming on my frame. The main problem is that the sleeves are soooo heavy that they drag down the shoulders. So basically if I were to stand with my hands at my sides, the damn thing would probably just fall right off of me. In fact, I had to pin the shoulders to the dressform because of the same problem. Color me annoyed. What the hell am I going to do now? I’ll have to knit some sort of interior back strap for support. *grumble, grumble, grumble*
