Alright. I need to balls up and just do it.
I have gotten to the hem of my Odilon and have started on the arm and am fooling NO ONE. WTF am I doing? I won’t wear this…it just isn’t me right now.
Just one more gripe about the pattern before I leave it behind in the dust (since I am sure you all haven’t heard QUITE enough yet). Once you get to the chevrons meeting at the sides you are pretty well on your own. Except for a vague, half sentence on how to join the tip (which doesn’t match the tip on the back. Why? Oh why?), you are left to guess as to what it should look like, how/when to join up the new chevron and how to do the hip increases. This is what I ended up with after 2 tries and more frogging:
Not bad, but not stellar.
To end things on a positive note, though. Look at those front chevrons!
Ahem. Frogging back to the armpit and then knitting this puppy again without decreases. I want a boxy little cardi.
Why don’t I ever listen to that inner voice? (or the outer one either for that matter!). What an arsepain.
