I had been so proud of myself, working on my first EZ seamless sweater (for me) and understanding it all. I had a devil of a time at first getting the gauge. Using Cascade 220 and 7s, I consistently got 4.5 spi, yet it was too big for my required measurements. So after about a week and a half of knitting 8-10 inches of sweater, I finally got it right, and knitted for three weeks and got all the way to binding off the neck. It looked wonderful and I couldn't believe how fast it goes when you're just knitting (I tend to slow down purling). So then I pull the perfectly-knitted-thing over my head and.........
IT DON'T FIT! Very tight under the arms, the yoke seems a bit "short" and the neckline was funky. (I did the saddle-shoulder version). It was a fun project and I learned a lot, but end of story, it is now 8 balls of yarn again. Maybe I need to watch the video a few more times to become re-inspired. Just thought I'd share with you all.
Have good weekends,
