Grief was coming at me from many directions while knitting Sweatrrr. First there
Then there was the issue of the sleeve cap seam placement. I am fussy about that. To make me happy, that seam must sit precisely on my shoulder bone. Despite arranging the piece around my neck several times, I couldn't tell for certain where that seam would sit until the work was joined in the round. Joining didn't happen until the centre-front, neck line was completed. When I tried it on, I didn't like what I saw.
There seems to be a hump behind the shoulder seam.
All those issues, coupled with knowing that even if the sweater were to be completed to perfection, I would still have a sweater with set-in-sleeves (not my favourite) - made me realize 'I'm not having that much fun here.'
So rip, rip.
Back to a tried and true. Top down. Raglan Sleeves. Cardigan. Begun with one of the contrast colours. That makes me feel better.
I'm off to a great start. A change is as good as a rest the old saying goes. Because most importantly - I'm having fun now.
