Allow me to preface this post by saying that in fact the sweater didn't come out so bad. The sleeves are too long, not a pattern error, and I will be learning a way to fix that with the help of indigodragonfly who shortened the sleeves on her Susie Hoodie.
I think my dislike for the sweater came when I saw the colorway change to huge circles on my buttocks! Then the decreasing started to give me problems, but I didn't give up. I then had to rip out the collar a few times, but as the Knitting Frog Fairy called to me to start frogging I continued.
I finished it only to find it didn't fit!
In a fit of rage I started to pull on the ribbing along the front and broke some of the yarn! As the Knitting Frog Fairy laughed the ribbing began to fall apart!!
Being the hard head that I am, I fixed it and here it is.
Doesn't look too bad does it?
I made a swatch to practice shortening the sleeves as indigodragonfly said. I just need a break from it for a while. I'm already feeling better about it and think,this time, I will not listen to the Knitting Frog Fairy.
If things change I will post pictures of the frogging just for the Knitting Frog Fairy.
