I'm not at all worried about the size. I am definitely bigger now than when I started it and after 3 years of working on it, I'd be even more devastated if it didn't fit around my fat self. :P

The "wonkiness" of this piece is something I addressed with the designer when I first started working on it because it was so severe. It is *REALLY* wonky in some spots because of the pattern stitches, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered blocking it until after it was seamed just to rectangularize spots. It is 50% alpaca and I know that can get REALLY drapey and stretchy when damp, so that could be part of it too.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
