… a lot more than it will you. But I think it is time to bid farewell to the buttony raglan. At least in its current incarnation on #9 needles.
The fabric is just too tight and stiff; not to mention that I’ve already used a bazillion balls of merino chunky and I don’t even have a respectable shrug out of the deal. This was really what broke the camel’s back, though:
One, lonely forgotten increase (right side). A mere straw, yes, but the one-too-many for this camel. I decided that if I was going to rip back to fix the increase (because this will bother my latent obsessive tendencies) then I might as well just keep on going. Because at this rate, I don’t think Debbie Bliss makes enough merino chunky for this sweater to ever see the light of day as a wearable object, not just a process-oriented piece of meditative knitting. So I shall be ripping. And beginning again on #10 1/2 needles. Or trying my hand at something different …
Remember this lovely?
Or maybe I should just write those pesky papers …. Did someone say dissertation proposal?
