My Drops cardie is almost done. I’ve not got enough yarn for a collar and it fits well. The problem? I just don’t LOVE it. I like it fine, but that is not love. I LOVE the yarn and I don’t want to settle for a sweater I only like.
Does that make sense?
I’ve been thinking about the pieces of this project that I like: the cables of course and the reverse stockinette is lovely and rustic.
I don’t like the garter stitch yoke because of the change in density from the reverse stockinette, it just doesn’t work for me. And while I like the longer sweater length, shortening the sweater a tad will give me enough for a good collar, not some compromise thing.
The verdict: I think this will get ripped. What it will become is still up in the air. Any suggestions?
P.S. If tomorrow (2/19) is your birthday, happy birthday…xoxo
