Yay!* I really think I got it just about right this time . Do you see how I’m smiling? (The last shot included as Dale thinks I look very much like some of your pictures in it. I told him we were identical twins after all!) I didn’t account for having such a high wasitline. if I had done so, I would love it more — but as it is, I’m darned pleased with how this turned out and I am going to be wearing it a lot. It dresses up a plain t-shirt nicely so it will give me a good option when I’m out and about or at a casual party. And, it’s another WIP completed.
I do have an issue with the next target…turns out I knit two different sizes of sleeves. I have a plan though. Since it’s mohair, I’m going to trim down one sleeve (after having mattress stitched into place) and then whip stitch the seam to secure the it from fraying. I’ll also whip stitch the opposite seam so the bulk will be the same in each shoulder. I’m telling myself this added bulk will actually add some definition to the shoulder, which should look nice on this slightly fitted cardigan. We’ll see. Worst case is I’ll take the sleeve back out, frog down to where the sleeve cap started and reknit.
*I am bothered when people spell “yay” as “yeah.” One rhymes with hay, the other is a casual version of yes.
