Dear Tangled Yoke,
I was really looking forward to wearing you. You're so soft and warm, and I could already imagine all the cold winter days we would have together. But then...
You had to grow so friggin' huge when i blocked you! I know, I know, you're made of wool, and wool can be unpredictable when it comes into contact with water. And yes, I know, I should have blocked my swatch.
But still. Couldn't you have cut me some slack? What about shrinking a few inches around the waist? Would that be too much to ask?
Or how does losing a few pounds on the back sound? Could you do that for me?
Or maybe you're trying to give me some kind of hint. "Keep off the chocolate, or this is what you'll be wearing in a few months."
Now I can't decide if I'm going to sew some side seams on you and keep you, or if you're going to be a christmas present...
Oh well, at least I still have my new sweater project to cheer me up.
I'm making this sweater up as I go along. The yarn is Kauni multicolor, and the fair isle hearts are an adaptation of a lace pattern.
I don't know how much fair isle I will put in yet. But I really like the white-on-brown effect, so I'm guessing there will be more.
