Special Saturday Post!!
Thanks for all your extremely kind comments on the Pinwheel Sweater!
Yesterday afternoon I tried it on while knitting the first sleeve, just to get some idea of how long I need to make the sleeves.I couldn’t keep the freaking thing on — it kept falling off my shoulders. The only way it will ever stay on for me is if I pin it together in the front.
The problem is the lack of shoulder shaping, of course.
My first instinct was to stuff it in my knitting bag, to be ripped out. But I slept on it. Now I can’t decide if I want to finish it or rip it out and use the yarn for something else. I’ve got some time to think about it, because I know now I will run out of yarn, and the extra I ordered hasn’t been shipped yet — it’s still marked as “pending” when I check the order online.
I took some not-great photos in the mirror. I do like the back (but had a heck of a time photographing it.
And here’s the front.
So tell me . . . what do you think?
Feel free to add opinions in the comments!
As you can see, Lucy thinks it’s just fine:
