February Fail

I had to frog February Lady. It was about 3/4 complete.

Sigh. Good thing I’m more in it for the process than the product.

It was just too big, there was no getting around it. There was way too much material under the arms. If I’m going to like a sweater made from heavy yarn, it has to have negative ease, and I forgot that somehow.

  1. I think that is a very common FLS problem! When my sister made one I suggested leaving off the yo’s on the sleeves. It took some pattern math to figure it out but the sleeves fit MUCH better.

  2. Oh man…that really bites! I once completed an entire sock, decided to go down a couple of needle sizes, and then reknit it after knitting the mate. That stunk too, so I feel your pain!
