Partial Failure: Rusted Root

Well, the good news is that Top-Down sweaters can be tried on before finishing  the whole thing.

The bad news is that I’ve essentially created a really big swatch for Rusted Root:

Trying it on helped me to discover the sweater is the tiniest bit too tight all over, and entirely too tight in the armpit.

So I unraveled this morning during swim lessons:

Yeah, it’s a bummer, but it’s okay too.  I’m happy that I can restart now instead of later.  And I’ve already re-cast on, so I’m zen with the whole process.

About lionsdaughter

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
