Temp: 94 degrees.
Yarn: Superbulky Malabrigo Rasta.
Knitter: Hot and bothered.
So I finished–except for the collar–my Cropped Cardi. To my dismay, it did kind of come out as a knitted fat suit. I left all of the ends loose after sewing up, just in case the whole thing needed to be unraveled. And then I put it back in the bag.
I got it out to photograph today–because there’s nothing quite like procrastinating to quell the anxiety over the amount of work you have due, and hey, I kind of like the darn thing. I think the collar would help it, cause it might just be the neck shape that’s throwing me off.
I’m not saying it doesn’t make me look fat, but I don’t think it’s entirely the sweater’s fault (here’s looking at you, peanut butter and chocolate). I do still love the way it is constructed and the directions created by the garter stitch lines. And I can imagine how comfortable this extra squishy layer might be in the midst of Winter. Haha, Winter! Ha, hahahaha!.
Your thoughts? Shall I go for it, or start frogging?
P.S. I think I am going to re-knit the right sleeve, because I forgot a decrease in there. So don’t let that count against it.
