There was a reason why decided to knit the baby cardigan sweater as I seem to run into a little problem. I read the directions and followed to the letter, but looking at the pieces, I do not see the sleeves matching up to the armholes correctly. I may redo part of the front parts of the sweater. Although, I could be annoyed, but am finding this process somewhat therapeutic with the assurance that I more patient than I give myself credit. It is all about a part of the learning process as well as I see my mistakes and really could learn from them as well. Does this process take some time? Yes, but it allows me to slow down in a world that is very fast-paced and encourages me to take my time.
It does look like that I may to start my sweater again from scratch, and conventional wisdom prevailed when I decided to start this sweater with enough time to complete before the baby made her or his debut. I may to make a correction the pattern with knitting the to front pieces and that should fixed the problem of fitting the sleeves and save me from knitting the sweater from the beginning. I just came up with an alternative solution while writing this blog entry. Sometimes I come up with ideas in the middle of writing and part of my therapy.
I have not done any sewing this year as I have become so focused on the sweater, but thinking about purchasing a serger. I do go back and forth on the to serger or not serger. However, I do want to sew knit fabrics and would like to have a finished and neater to the garments. The serger is still on hold for the moment along with my jersey wool fabric for my dress.
