Don't fool with Mother Nature....
or Rowan Patterns!
|What could I be contemplating??!?!?|
Rewind back to this, my Anastasiya from Rowan 48.
I love this sweater! It was a challenge to knit and the yarn (Rowan Felted Tweed) is luscious.
Hubby and I were on our way North for a couple of days and I thought Anastasiya would be a great wardrobe piece - so many shades in it that just combine it with a few t-shirts and you're good to go - NOT!
WHY DON'T I WEAR IT?
I tried it on and I have to admit.....I made a grave error with this sweater! I deviated from the pattern! At the time, I decided that the V neck was too short, and that I'd prefer a deeper V......I don't think I made it much deeper, but I did start the V in the flower motif - it should definitely have started a few inches higher! With a shallower V, I think it would look great with a t-shirt just peeking up into the V.
So, I've made a momentous decision - I am going to take off the neckline and armhole finishing, undo the shoulder seams, and cut the offending V out of this sweater - I'll pick up the stitches and reknit the front.
WISH ME LUCK!!!!! I'll need it!
