It doesn't fit

Karen tried on her sleeveless summer shell yesterday. And... it doesn't fit.

It's way too wide and the armholes are too long (shows her bra).

FRACK! I'm SO disappointed.

Actually I was despondent, disheartened, discouraged, dispirited, disconsolate, despairing, down and depressed.

I had to sulk for a while. And then rant a bit. Then sigh and get really quiet.

But then Karen reminded me that knitting is a learning process and that I'm not going to be perfect (at least not right away).


I think I will knit the shell again. I'm determined to figure it out. I'll keep you updated.

I'm so sorry that your first attempt wasn't to your liking. I'm sure that the second one will be much better. Just think of all of the experience that you are gaining. :) Sending "you can do it" vibes your way.

It has to be so hard to start over after working so long and hard. One good thing, now you won't have that cast on hole in the back.

Just imagine if you were Nanny, doing alterations on clothing all the time! Love, Mom
