The whole time I've been working THIS version of sweater, I kept thinking - it seems big. But I used to be big so I just kept knitting along happily. I love the pattern - Pippi by c2knits. Easy to follow, seamless, top down. I was just chugging along. It was easily a good 4" too big around.
All wound up and back to the beginning - again.
This is the 4th time I will be starting a sweater with this yarn. I've certainly gotten my money's worth from this purchase!
For now, the whole thing is back in the pretty knitting bag. It will be "resting" while I move on to something else for awhile. Someday - maybe in the fall, I will get it all back out and try again.
