Ok, so I just finished my first ever sweater--Picovoli
and it's AWFUL. It's too short and the bottom rolls up, the sleeves are wayyyy more tank-like than the picture and the armpit hole is HUUUGE and bra-visible. There is no shape to it whatsoever and the waist shaping poufs out in the back. It's so ugly. Has anybody else made this, have you run into any similar problems?
I'm pretty sure I made it at least a size too big, because I went strictly by my big boobings...and didn't account for negative ease or whatever. When shopping for the yarn I also went by gauge and neglected fiber content (duhhh....) so mine isn't a cotton blend either.
Here's the mess:
I was so excited about this and even thought it would be ok when I tried it on a few times...but no dice. So (dun dun dunnnnn) I'm about to FROG
the ENTIRE thing!!
Oh god it might kill me! Somebody help me turn this into a laughing matter--I bet of you!
Honestly, I know I'm better off frogging. I will NEVER wear this piece of junk and this way I can reuse the yarn. Maybe I'll reknit Pico a smaller size and try to do some mods to the arms and bottom. Maybe I'll do something different. LeSigh...this is still gonna be rough! Maybe I should wait until I can have a few beers!!
Blargh! Gah! Oof! KaPOW!
I so wanted to be proud of my first garment and wear it. This is gonna be rough!
