I've recently lost some weight, yay, but now my hand knit sweaters don't fit the same, boo. I have a lot of sweaters that I've made but I just haven't been wearing them because the fit is off.
I've ripped the front out of my beatnik babe sweater, removed the bust shaping and reknit it. I hate reknitting. I'd rather be working on my neglected fairisle sweater, (which I still need to make the sleeves for), but instead I'm ripping out things from 2- 3 years ago and trying to remember what I originally did. Thank God for ravelry, because I have the worst memory and would never be able to keep track! Here is the new and improved beatnik:
And now I need help altering one of my favorite sweater, Meredith by Kim Hargreaves.The neckline is gaping, the sides are too bit, its just unflattering. I worked so hard on it, I just can't wrap my head around how to fix it. Do I just take up the shoulders, take in the whole thing, I'm just too emotionally invested in the sweater to evaluate it. Ever feel that way?
