My knitting history is decades old and I know if I'm not completely happy while it's being knitted up there is a slim chance I'll love it off the needles.
I loved the construction of this sweater and the shoulder fit and length is perfection. My gauge was spot on-love when that happens. The front panels have too much fabric and not enough drape and hit in all the wrong places on my body. No amount of blocking in the world is going to change that. My doubts started when I knit the ribbing of the panels and then the ribbing of the neck line. Last night I was going to start ripping but I forced myself to sleep on that drastic decision. Altering the pattern requires ripping ribbings and I'd just rather have a fresh start at another pattern.
This is not the first sweater I've frogged and it won't be my last. Sometimes that is what a knitter has to do. For now I'm setting it aside and I'll work on something small.
Tell me about your change of heart projects?
