Well I’ve never had so many sweaters that are 95% done. Four in fact. I’m in serious doubt that the Drops Alaska sweater will fit me. [U] I think[/U] it will fit like it could house a Boeing 747 jet. Me thinks I goofed up BIG TIME in choosing a size. Butthe darn thing, including sleeves are blocked…and I’ve picked up all the stitches and the yoke is now halfway done. Only after the yoke is all done will I REALLY KNOW if this sweater will fit. It’s raglan seams, so I can’t really tell by holding it up to me. Darn.
If it’s [B]ten miles too big.[/B]…I’ll re-knit with new yarn…and someday, in the truck with DH, on our way to the mountains, I’ll frog this monstrosity and save it for a Log Cabin blanket. Because the yarn is blocked…the “full soak” kind of blocking…the yarn will be a curly as Little Orphan Annie’s hair! I know there are ways to uncurl yarn…but I’m not in the mood to do it. There’s too much of it.
In addition to the (maybe) monstrosity, I knit three Woven Braid Ski Hats…that I’m now in the process of RE-KNITTING, using double strand…because the hats, I decided, fit more like skull-caps than ski-hats. That will teach me to tinker with the yarn weight! :pout:
The only good news I can report: the 6 Mini Mochi scarves I knit up for 6 of my grandchildren are done and they turned out great!
And one of the Woven Braid Ski Hats is done, and looks much better! It was worth the time to re-knit!
