I don't care what anyone else says, I think this sweater is ugly. Add to that, it is my first sweater and I made it to the wrong gauge....and I really hate it. I was going to frog it and start over...but it has taken me most of the summer to make. Luckily a female friend of mine tried it on, and on her small frame it actually fits. This just means that I have to make my father something else for Christmas. Right now I am just waiting for my friend to come over and try it on before I finish the collar. Well...that, and I don't understand the directions from here, so off to the LYS I go.
