|This photo is a bit dark, but it's the closest to the true colour of this sweater, which is a dark grey/charcoal shade. The rest of the photos wound up too bright, but shows the details a bit better. Ugh photography - you are not my thing.|
Pattern: Rolling Rock, by Thea Colman
Yarn: Briggs & Little Sport in Dark Grey
Mods: Not much on the upper body, all the waist shaping on the lower body. Shortened sleeves to 3/4 length.
Things I love about this sweater:
|Oh wow, nice butt photo there Heather. If I weren't too damn lazy and wanting to go to bed, I'd go back and crop it. OH WELL BUTTS FOR YOU.|
Things I don't like about this sweater:
|MOAR BUTTS. But (hehe) you can also see how bad the upper torso fit is at the underarm. It's too wide across the upper back. You know, I could probably knit this whole sweater again and simply eliminate a few lace repeats form the back. Hmmm.|
And you know what? It worked! Sort of. I point this problem out to EVERYONE, and they all say that the sweater looks great and they don't see anything wrong. I do, of course I do. Between the large size and the slight bias this single ply yarn creates, the neckline is actually skewed a bit, and the henley doesn't hold itself open unless I keep the sweater tugged down.
