knitting intervention needed



I think I need to rip out Featherweight cardi.  THE WHOLE THING.

I tried it on just now, now that I’ve finished the first half of the collar.  The collar?  Awesome.  Fits perfectly, shapes like a dream, exactly like I’d wanted.  But now that the collar fits, the rest of it looks SO SLOPPY!

I’m going to try to get Yannick to take photos to show you what I mean.  But really?  Ugh.  I would never, ever wear it.  It’s too baggy, the arms look like they’ll be huge and there is so much extra under the arms that I could lose over 2 inches and still have a good fit.  I don’t know if it can be saved.

  1. Ugh! I feel your pain. That’s one reason I don’t like to handknit stuff that’s not try-on-able while knitting. Is there someone you can gift it to, or can you use a sewing machine to alter it? I know that sounds obsence, but MKers will often make knit fabric and then cut and sew their pieces like a sewer. And, there is a growing “re-fashioned” trend now which includes taking old, huge, ’80s sweaters and downsizing them…


  2. Oh no!!! Really?? You were so far along on it… Do you think you’ll rip it out and start fresh? What did you end up doing?
