This is my husband, in a sweater I knit for myself.
Given our size discrepancy, this is not a good sign.
Last winter I knit a modified Blackberry out of some lovely tweedy dark blue-green yarn (by Rowan, I think).
It was a total disaster. I realized that the sleeves were coming out too big, so I started those over, but the body is gigantic.
Note the attractive bulge at the side.
I took this sweater out because I’d like to fix it up so I can wear it this fall. I got my husband to take some “before” pictures so I could do a post about how I fixed it up. I was complaining about the fit, and he was like “dude, that’s so gigantic, it would probably fit me.” And wouldn’t you know, it did. I may be able to salvage the sleeves, but the body is definitely on the lily pad.
