The sweater, that is.... I ripped it apart. All the way down to nothingness.
Then I stared at the pattern for a long time. A loooooong time. Ok, less than five minutes until I realized what I needed to do to make it work for me.
I deleted a few unnecessary stitches, changed it around a bit, then I started knitting again. I'm about two inches in already. My hands hurt, but I'm in love with it now.
I'll take a pic this weekend after I get more time into it!
