FO-a-day, Day 3: Cobblestone

Posted on May 06, 2008 by knittingpatterns4you | 3 Comments

So I'm cheating a bit with this one, because it's been finished for a long time. But I never showed it off on the blog before! I managed to get Adam to pose for a picture under the condition that I wouldn't show his face. So yet another headless shot it is!

This sweater has been pretty well documented on the blog: I did some weird construction changes to it, and it went through surgery, so I feel like there isn't much left to say about it. I did have trouble with the neckline and I'm not entirely happy with the way it sits, I think a few more short rows would have done it some good and made it fit better. I also think the yoke is too wide, and that the whole thing is too long, but I'm not going back to change it! It definitely fits well enough for Adam to wear, and if I compare it to some of the first sweaters I knit for ME, this fits perfectly in comparison! If only I knew then what I know now . . .
