There's nothing like starting over
Remember that sweater that I was knitting for my husband? Well ... I've had to start over. Completely. From. Scratch. Essentially, even though I begged and pleaded for him to try it on before I got too far along, he kept saying, "Nah, it'll be fine, just keep going." Over the holidays I got up past the armholes and MADE him try it on. Know what he said? "Um, I'd like it a little bigger." GAH! So instead of frogging what I had, I just cut the yarn and started over. This time I am using slightly bigger needles and knitting the next size up. That should give him PLENTY of ease since he's a guy that fully believes in layering (it's not uncommon for him to wear like 4 shirts at a time!). I'm making decent progress, though, even though I may not be completely finished by the end of the month. With a vacation day today and a holiday on Monday, I foresee plenty of quality knitting time in my very near future!
