slowly making up my mind

***Just a note. I have gone back to Blogger's default comment system because Haloscan was taken over by Echo and it was weird. The problem is that all the previous comments were erased BUT I still have them in my email so THANK YOU to those left comments! I enjoy reading them so much!***

Okay. I think I have decided what to do with my Ingenue.

Remember the side pooching? I've been really procrastinating on doing anything about it but I finally gave it a good blocking and it may have helped only slightly.

See, not so bad from the front:Side view, not good:Back - TERRIBLE!

I almost thought I could live with the slight pooching but when I saw the way!

SO, I think I'm going to try going up a needle size and redo the bottom stitch pattern. I did decide that I'm happy with the length though. Overall I think I'm going to like this sweater once I get it finished. I'm extremely temped to give it short sleeves instead of 3/4 length sleeves. I love wearing long sleeves under short sleeves and it suites our climate so much better. I think I will try it and see how it looks. My other motivation is that I wouldn't have to rip out this to have enough yarn for the sleeves!

Here's a little sneak peek at a finished quilt top waiting to be quilted (for the shop):

P.S. Thanks for the advise to switch to Google Reader....LOVE IT!!!

Oh, I'm sorry about the Ingenue pooching! That's such a bummer. But your plan sounds like a good one.

The quilt is stunning - I love the colors!
