I've been working on this little cotton jacket, in anticipation of Spring. I was really inspired by Flare over at Knit and Tonic. I envisioned a smart little jacket to wear with the perfect jeans and a stripey tee. I love my jacket, I really do, but there are so many things wrong with it!
I really don't like the way the stitches strech where I picked up for the neck band. I feel like I picked up in the wrong spot, but it's only on this side. What the hell? There's also this really lumpy bit on the garter stich edge where I joined a new ball of yarn. Just because I was lazy and I didn't want to knit back any stitches and join in a less conspicious place. Oh, well. Too late now.
Like, what the hell is this? My gauge mysteriously becomes gi-normous. I thought this would resolve itself. Maybe it still will with a good washing.
Blech! So I'm knitting the first sleeve now, and hope to have it all done by the weekend so I can give it a little wash in my parents' machine (for free). My photographer's back in town so I may have some pics as early as next week.
