Adam is 92% finished ⭐
But needs to be unraveled 😢 😢
And I was SO looking forward to beginning a new knitting project!
I am working on the neck portion now and asked the husband to do a fitting last night. Everything else fit (beautifully, I might add), except the underarm portion 😤 😤
Adam follows the pattern Joukahainen and is a pdf download from Ravelry. See the hot stuff here:
It is a raglan sleeved sweater worked from bottom to top, so I don’t think there was any way to have done an earlier fitting that would have properly exposed the tight underarm portion.
I’ve been racking my brains for ways to salvage the project. But since stitch count influences the tapering of the raglan sleeves, which in turn affects length of the yoke portion, short of claiming Adam for myself, I see no other plausible option but to unravel, add more stitches and just basically start from stitch zero.
I’m a little teapot short and stout! Here is my handle and here is my spout! When the water’s boiling hear me shout …
My husband really likes Adam though and I don’t want to claim it for myself because I already have Eve.
Tip the handle and pour me out!
Allez – I am going to put on my big girl panties and unravel the thing and start from the very beginning.
What is worth doing is worth doing well! ~ says Paardje ❤
But maybe not today. Today I deserve CHOCOLATE! 😉
So meanwhile let me regale you with a photo of bat droppings in my beloved reflection place (but they obviously weren’t partying hard last night):
You do know I like to tease you, right? 🤣 ✌️🏻 ✌️🏻
