So, I finished the yoke of the red and black sweater…
…and the fit was really shitty. At first I thought it might be because the entire sweater was just too big, but I laid my Retro-Prep on top and it was about the same size. So RIIIIIIIP again, back to just after I joined the sleeves. Gonna do raglan decreases every other row in the hopes that the sweater body also won’t get too long – the length looked weird too. So now I’m back to where I was in that second picture from the previous entry.
Times like this I wish I had a winder. I was trying to wait until September for the Kitchener-Waterloo knitting festival where I can get both a swift and winder for $100, but I might have to just forgo the swift and spend $50 on a winder.
Anyway, if this doesn’t work out I’m ripping this sweater entirely. Third time better be a charm, eh?
