Fair isle Saga
I knit the fair isle sleeve sweater from the most recent Vogue Knitting. I used a yarn that didn't give me the appropriate gauge but I figured out if I knit the sweater according to the directions for a small it would give me the fit for a large.
And I blocked it. And I wove in ends. And the cat peed on it. And I washed it and put it in the dryer for a bit to sort of shrink it up.
So. The cat pee smell is gone thank heavens. But as you can see, the fit is still off. There is no assymetrical neckline. It's very droopy in the front and in the back. but the body fits pretty well (that is, bustline on down.
Don't I look like a mannequin?
