Knitting Up A Storm!

FO Alert! Tilted Duster is done like dinner. Here it is pre blocking with all her strings hanging out:


I would have shown you a picture of it completely done, except I am frogging this sucker and using the yarn for something else.

Sounds crazy eh? Let me try and explain. When I first saw this sweater, I really truly like it. Then I saw FOs in blogland and started not to like it. I still didn't like it but decided to knit it anyway. During the whole process I kept thinking, I am not going to like it, I am not going to like it. Guess what? I don't like it. It is really small across the shoulders and arms making it very uncomfortable. The ribbing on the back clings to my butt like saranwrap on a sandwich. Trust me - it doesn't look good and I wasn't sharing that view with the world.

Plus I think it looks like a maternity sweater on me. All open in the front, like the two fronts should meet, but they can't because of a giant stomach in front.

Enough said. Good Bye my Tilted Duster = it's been a slice.

You know I felt the same way until I blocked.the.everloving.crap out of it. It made all the differnce in the world. I hate anything that tugs around the butt but when I blocked it (wet and then with an iron dry) the ribbing stayed open. I really like yours and from here, it looks like it fits. Maybe the blocking will give it the give and shape you are looking for?
