Hmm. Eep, opp, ork, ah ah...
Those are the noises I make when I'm unsure. It's from an old Jetsons episode, I think.
Anyway, I didn't love it. Two problems:
- I messed up on the placement of one of the buttons holes. It forgot to add it in as I was knitting it, so it's a tad too low.
- It just didn't look... right.
I went back to the pattern and looked at the pictures. I started talking myself down: I don't look anything like that swan-necked beautiful blonde model. I don't have that body. I am oval-shaped. I'm Mrs. Humpty Dumpty...
Then, I looked at the project pages of people on Ravelry who made the same sweater...No Humpty Dumpty-like people there. Hmmm.
And then, I unbuttoned the front. Hey... wait a minute!
And then, I loved it again.
So, the moral of the story is, when it doubt, unbutton it. 'Nuff said.
