Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

*Cries* and frogs

Posted by Amber on February 28, 2006

So I finished up to the shoulders of my theoretical sweater. Theory did not turn into practice. My favorite sweater is 42″ across. My clingiest sweater that I like wearing is 40″. (The front and back are equal sizes, so 22 and 20 inches, respectively).

The theoretical sweater? 18.5″ (18.5*2 = 37 inches, THREE inches smaller than my chest).

It seems I forgot the cable makes it shrink in a little bit. There’s just no amount of blocking that will fix it, so later today or tomorrow sometime I’ll sit down with the ball winder and rip it out, and start again this weekend. In a way it’s good – the three spots where I screwed up can be fixed, and I can change the neckline to have a cable run up the side, which will look nicer (as opposed to now, where it just ends).


(The grey one is the 40″ inch sweater.)
