LOL. I should call this

LOL. I should call this the Taliesin hoodie (Or maybe the "Frankenhoodie)... Frank Lloyd Wright was always rebuilding his own house, Taliesin...when ever I make a sweater, the minute I try it on, if I am not 100% pleased with it, I retailor it until I am completely satisfied.

I've retailored the sides, took the front of the shoulders out and short -rowed them after the whole garment was knit. I did the hood about 3 times, did 3 different sets of under arm gussets...(The original design didn't have them, and the armholes were too snug). I still have to redesign the invisible ribbing at the bottom hem as I'm not 100% pleased with it.

A change from repair and alteration? IF ONLY! LOL!
