I don't think I have mentioned my (second) first sweater here? Or I have mentioned it, but haven't gone into much detail about it. It is the Francis Revisited pattern and I am using Cascade Eco in a pretty basic gray color. I didn't want a color that stood out too much because it is my first sweater and I want to wear it and I was sort of limited in color choices when I bought this yarn. The Eco stands for "ecological" but it was also the most economical because I didn't want to spend a lot of money and then get bored or have a ton of weird colored yarn and you get a lot of yarn for your money with Eco and it is nice and sweater-y. So now I have all this yarn and a sweater that's about 3/4 finished- I have to make a sleeve and do the cowl neck, but I don't have the heart to work on it right now, and it's not because I am bored.
It's because I tried it on and it is a little...snug.
In its early stages. I would take a new picture but I'd prefer to ignore it right now
I know it's going to get a little bigger when I block it and it's hard to get a sense of how its going to fit when the stitches are on scrap yarn but it's making me a bit sad. I am not tremendously busty and based on the pattern it should be a smidgen too big in the chest area but there you have it. Of course this means I am trying to lose weight to fit into a sweater which I haven't even blocked yet. Sigh. I will work on it this weekend. And I know it will fit wonderfully once it's blocked but till then I am going to mope about it and work on UFOs (so maybe this isn't all bad?) and eat like a little bird.
