I love her. This is the second attempt at a sweater out of this yarn. I love the yarn, it's is very light and easy to work with. The sweater pattern itself is very popular right now, and since I had so much of this yarn I decided to try my hand at sleeve and added two more buttons. It would be the most wonderful sweater in the world, if.......................................
I were a 44 inch chest. I'm not. There is nothing wrong with being a 44 inch chest. I wish that I was to tell you the honest truth, because then I would have this wonderful sweater to wear whenever I wanted to. I tried to make it work, I wore it for a whole day, I loved it. But it's just to big, and when asked directly what he thought, Mr. Romance told me that it looked like I could keep another person under there with me. I just don't need that in a sweater right now.
I tried to be good with this. I couldn't follow the pattern as it's written so I took my gauge, my measurements and the EPS with regards to how many stitches to use for the sleeves (which fit perfectly by the way, I do love them). But somewhere in all the distractions and lack of "thought out"ness. I have a huge sweater.
Bottomline: I ripped it right back out again. I want this sweater made from this yarn and I'm on a budget. So, I'm going to try again, and this time I'm casting on about 20 less stitches then before. So at least it should go faster!!!
Oh and I left the picture big, it's how I feel about the whole thing right now and wanted to give you some perspective.
