makes me wonder

All right, so here’s my shooping tunic. It’s all done, and in under week. Too bad it looks better on my bed than on me. The cowl neck is a little too floppy, and its just HUGE. I didn’t think it was that big looking at other FOs but I felt a little silly when I tired it on because of the neck. Seriosuly, it just wasn’t working for me.

I’m not completely giving up hope. Perhaps if I wash it and everything it will look better. Maybe? Please?

Hopefully, my titled duster will turn out better. I got the yarn earlier this week, and I just love the color. It has touches of all sorts of other shades through out it. So when you look at it from far away it looks like a plain tan, but close up it has reds and purples and yellows playing through the fabric.

My guage was off, and 16 sts/4ins instead of 17 on size 9s. But I can’t really go down to 8s because my 8s are kind of broken. So I had been planning to make the 36″ size but now I’m going to make the smallest size which with my guage should give me about a 34″ finished size instead, which is actually more of I wanted anyway. So we’ll see if I can actually make a sweater that I like this time.
