And sometimes, the things I knit, and slave over, and buy extra yarn for, are just, meh. This is one of this projects. Because, in the picture above, it looks OK. In the picture below, is looks so-so
|what's that over there, is that a squirrel??|
And in the last picture, it looks down-right terrible. It is just too small across the chest. And I knit one size up since it is supposed to be fitted! I also don't like how short it is, even after I lengthened it.
So I'm not sure what I'll do. It is OK with just a few buttons closed, and I do like the way the shoulders fit. And I like the detail, and the blocking helped the sleeves fit. But, it may just go into the closet and sit there for a while. I'm in no hurry to knit myself a bigger one that fits better. Oh well, I guess you can't win them all.
Pattern: Braid Hills
Yarn: Cascade 220 sport in straw gold (I love the color)
That's it for me. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, we've got some fun planned! See you next week.
