Disaster…

It's my middle name.

Well, the Main Line sweater mentioned in the last post didn't work out exactly the way I wanted it to.  Though I learned a lot!  Working a steek for a v-neck with  yarn that's primarily cotton didn't work so great.  I also lost all my patience when it came to picking up the stitches for the collar and so it didn't turn out so hot either  (I could rip it out and do it over but I'm just not that type of knitter).  The sweater is also too short for my chubby bod so three strikes I'm out!

Or am I??…I could, just wear a blouse under the sweater.  The collar of the blouse would cover up the horid neckline; leaving the blouse untucked would look fine under the short sweater; the body of the sweater fits nicely so it wouldn't look so bad with the blouse….All I have to do is rip out the ribbing for the 3/4 sleeves and pick up the stitches and knit down to make the sleeves full length.  I have plenty of yarn left….hmmmm

Disaster averted?  We shall see…..
