I had ripped back the body of the ruffles cardi to make the armscye deeper by doing another inch or so of raglan increases. Then I knit down the body, completing the waist shaping. I did one extra decrease. Now I’m going to do about 1.5 inches even, then I’ll reverse the waist shaping. However …
The edges of the stocking stitch body are rolling like a mofo. Once the button bands are knit on they will flatten out, I know. But just slipping it on and unrolling the edges makes me think it might be too wide in the body. Oh noes! I wanted this to be a very fitted cardigan, so I need to do a gauge check and recalculate.
I can’t do it right now because I have to go do a few things – I am in need of perfect shoes for my “Ande’s wedding” outfit. The shoes I thought I’d use just aren’t working out. I got them at an insane price, but they must be a half-size too big because I keep walking out of them at the heels. I’ve tried putting pads in to snug up the fit, but it’s not working. If all else fails, we’ll have to take a break in the pre-wedding yarn crawls to find me some shoes in Van.
Also have a hair appt (cut and colour – I’m excited) and a physio to work out my rib/neck/shoulder which has been crappy the past few days. So no knitting until tonight.
