Again

Yeah, that Glenfiddich tunic needs to be frogged and re-done.  I was pretty sure when I first steamed it and the holes stayed so visible, but I was not emotionally ready to start ripping (rip it, rip it), but it is time.  Seeing it in a picture is actually worse than seeing it in real life.  The color variations are so obvious, one section to the next.  I know I wouldn’t be happy with it every time I looked at it.  And hopefully I will be wearing it for years and years, so what’s a month or so in lost knitting time?  It’s not really a big deal.  At least I know I really like the color, the size fits, nothing needs to be altered at this point, and the three needle bind off works really well for the shoulder.  With a small amount of effort, I will end up with a sweater I love.  Believe me, there have been sweaters that I did not fix that have been donated away.  When it’s not right, it’s just not right!  This one will be right, eventually.

I'd love to hear your ideas on this!
