Purple Daelyn Pullover Complete
Hey, guess what? I finished that sweater - more than a week ago and my oh my was my blocking off and maybe still is with that pesky garter stitch slant... The first time I blocked it, I did a slap dash job and it showed. The sweater was too long. So the second time I blocked it wide and used a measuring tape. Much much much better.
I might be picky but do you see how the front bunches a tiny bit? Yup. I don't like that. So the question is: is it just me being very picky? is that the way pullovers are and I'm a die hard cardigan wearer? should I block the sweater again?
When faced with such dilemmas I tend to put the garment aside and wait it out. There have been countless sweaters that I finish and my expectations are not met exactly. Time away does do wonders. For instance, on Saturday when I took the photos I really was not happy. Now that I'm blogging about it and looking at it, I think I might be crazy and picky. I like the sweater!
The pattern was fantastic to follow and of course Ella Rae yarn is delightful to knit with. I prefer it over Cascade 220 because of how soft it is. Ravelry note here.
