Pretend it's March 26th. Okay, it isn't March 26th, but pretend it is for a second. On March 24th, my sweater looked like this:
More or less. What was wrong with it? Well, the thing people say about flat gauge being different from in the round gauge turned out to be really true on this project. I stared at the different yoke and sleeve gauges for a couple of days trying to decide if I could live with it, and eventually the answer was no.
So I ripped back, went down a needle size for the yoke, and voila! It looks great. I just wish it'd looked this great the first time around.
This is the part where I repeat "I'm a process knitter, I'm a process knitter" and that I like the act of knitting every bit as much as the finished project… but I'm awfully glad to be nearing the end of the sleeves/yoke part, I have to say.
