and should probably be doing something else.

Most unflattering cardigan, ever

1 Comment

I hate it. It took me more than a year to finish it, and I hate it. Maybe that’s why it was languishing. Somewhere deep in my subconscious, I knew it would suck. I should know better than to make anything for myself that is thicker than 5 st/in, especially if it’s fuzzy. I’m going to try to make a tie for it and use it as a wrap rather than buttons, but I’m not hopeful. I’m going to see if any of my svelte friends might want it instead. Because, even though I hate the way it looks on me, it’s a nice cardigan – soft, warm, and the lace pattern (which you can’t really see in the picture) is pretty. Bleh. Oh well, the yarn was free, at least. And now I can cast on something new.

  1. dye it in some bright nice color you love or in a lapis lazuli blue or some other gemstone colr, it will totally change looks.
    maybe crochet around with metal thread in the same dye color, different hue.
    it needs vibrancy.
