I GIMPed this pic because the pose was a little 'racy' - but it was the only way to show what is really wrong with this sweater! The gauge of the weave on the front is too big - almost meshy, and the 'back' isn't really a back - more of a sailor flap?? And it's wavy-edged, not sure if that will straighten out :o(
The back is way too short - and too wide... but maybe putting another back up underneath it, and making it like a sailor's uniform flap might save it. But should I even try? This yarn could be made into socks - or something else.. and maybe it would be happier? Do you still think I should save it?
I started this today - because we are going on a long trip this week and I have to bring something with or go crazy. We are going to a convention to be part of the documentation crew. We will send back live podcasts, reports and other media to our company. Mr.J gets to run the sound equipment and I get to do the HTML and photography.
What about us?
Linky: Knitty: Knit in Technicolor (article) Hehe, that's funny! When Mr.J and I were going out.. YEARS ago.. like over 8 years ago, he always said I was the 'girl with technicolor hair.' It wasn't dyed or anything.. but I had so many red highlights in dishwater blonde hair (light and dark mixed all over) that he could never decide what colour it really was... so it was technicolor. As I got further away from sixteen, it got darker and now my driver's license officially says 'brown.' :o( No offense intended to brunettes. But, brown? I really rather prefer the technicolor blonde ;o)
