I Knew It Was Coming
but still I am unhappy about it. I’ve been wearing this cardigan for years. It predates Ravelry. I’m sure if I went on a treasure hunt I could find it on the blog somewhere near the beginning. It’s been my favorite sweater forever. It’s oversized and broken in, evidently really broken in. I wear it almost all the time when it’s the least bit cold. Sadly the yarn in the bind off has let go. As I said I knew it was coming. There are many places where the yarn is looking a little thin, like all the buttonholes and the bottom ribbing. Now I have to decide just how I’m going to deal with it. I do love the sweater so I should fix it but do I want to rip out the last couple of rows and reknit and bind off with weak yarn? Should I just patch in a piece of something else that goes well enough and call it good until another place lets go? I don’t think I have any more of this yarn unless it is buried very deeply in the stash. Should I just stuff it in the drawer and finish the purple cardigan and hope I love it as well? What to do. What to do.
