so i made a wicked. it's super cute and everything, but it's gigantic. between the yarn stretching and my chest shrinking after weaning, the thing is REALLY wide despite all my attempts to decrease it.
in a sad attempt to salvage it and make it wearable, i wet it down and tossed it in my dryer (on delicate) in an attempt to shrink it, but not felt. it was successful, but now i have a short wide sweater.
while i'm proud of it, and it's cute, i'll never wear it because it doesn't look good on. it's just WAY too wide.
meanwhile, i'm short on funds and drooling over the green gable pattern on zephyr's site.....
can i reuse the wicked's yarn if i kinda shrink it a little?
i'm just worried about the gage still being too big, and the yarn being weird now...and that i should make this summer type shirt from a cotton...
what do you think?
