*I've been watching True Blood. That's the only explanation I have for that one.
Did I distract you from the fact that I've yet to post a picture of the Ribbon & Spritzer tee?
I did finish it... really. And I bathed it too.
I just don't love any of the pictures I have so far. This is the best I've come up with.
And though the body now fits... I look at those sleeves... and the fact that it is totally drop shouldered (having taken out a bunch in the sides), and the shoulder span is just too wide. I look at it, and see that most of the time, it's going to look like this:
This, to me, looks like it's just too big.
Sigh. To fix THAT... I'd have had to rip the whole thing out and start over ... top down knitting and all.
I have a friend that would it likely would have fit before I started doing all this damned surgery on it. I should have gifted it then. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it now... but wear it proudly doesn't seem to be on my list.
Regardless of what I DO with it... it's FINISHED...
But if I decide that I want to reclaim the yarn -- frogging this will be SOOOOooooo much easier than frogging the Silk Garden. I've spent two sessions with it. Each over an hour long. I think I might be half done. Maybe. Maybe not. It's slow going, what with the mohair content sticking. I'm hoping to have it done by Thanksgiving...
But I do have pretty new Angel Face
I love winning.
It totally makes up for crappy fit after hours of fussing about.
