Should I Keep Going?


I'm not sure I like where this is going. In fact, I know I don't like where this is going. Then again, it doesn't look too bad in the pictures. It needs 1.5 sleeves, some woven in ends, and its done - c'est fini. Almost. I just don't know if I like it enough to keep going. You can't tell in the picture, but it's HUGE in the back. There's enough fabric back there to make me a matching scarf. And yet, I made this with 3" negative ease AND got stitch and row gauge. WTF?

So, it's just sitting in a bag awaiting a verdict. Should it stay or should it go?

No. Ditch it - it's not flattering from the pics even, and that's without seeing the back. :-S

I think it looks great from the front, but if you don't feel wonderful in it, then rip it!

It looks so nice and warm and soft...I say keep going.

If you aren't happy with it, frog it. I think it is cute tho. I'm starting the same sweater and thanks to your comments, I'm going to pay lots of attention to the fit as I go along. I got the Errata for this pattern, but it still appears to be wrong. The "New row (W/S") doesn't have the 5 seed stitches before the final 22 rib stitches. Am I crazy, or do they need errata for the errata??
