wonky!!

Well.. here is my progress on this sweater that is supposed to be finished and mailed before Christmas. I'm not really liking how it is turning out. The pattern is very fitted and I should have probably made a size bigger. At least the yarn is stretch yarn. Add to that a mistake on the cable in the back of the sweater( because I knit at all hours of the night). I'm really unhappy with the whole thing and getting ready to set it aside forever. Maybe it's the yarn. I have tried to use this yarn for a number of different projects all of which have been frogged.. hummm.. maybe the yarn is cursed!!... So now I have to decide if I want to just set it aside and try to make something else or just finish the last 10 rows and be done with it.. or frog it.. or rip back to the mistake and continue knitting it at a later time.. anyway I look at it .. I don't think this will be finished before Christmas.. add to that all the other projects that are on my knitting list that I haven't even started... this sweater has just been taking me forever to knit. On the good side... I found the manual to my knitting machine and some other good stuff including some lace patterns..

I think the sweater looks great, and I didn't spot any mistakes.

I'm sorry the sweater is being difficult! I can't see any mistakes on the back. Maybe finish it and see what you think when it's blocked? If it won't fit the recipient, you could always give it to charity. And then start a new sweater with yarn that you love. :-)

I ended up finishing the sweater and it came out pretty good. Now it just needs some buttons. I'll take some pictures of it tomorrow..!!
