yes, i cut off my head, and the rest of my body. i'm not feeling so pretty today. but the sweater is happy and pretty! oh, don't think for a moment i'm a master knitter getting this sweater made, as i had to make the bodice twice (i made it too small the first time, as my row gauge was off, and in side-to-side sweaters, row gauge does matter!)
speaking of gauge, i knitted part of a sleeve on the big bulky green cardi, and then slipped all my stitches onto waste yarn. yep. as i suspected. it's toooo big! gauge strikes again! i'm getting more like 9sts = 4" than the pattern's 10sts. ooops. that sweater will visit the frogpond later tonight. i'll rip back to before i seperated the sleeves from the body. i'll have to do some math too to get mine closer to the size i want, since it's a stitch gauge issue. but, i still want the length, you know, so i don't have a wide short sweater bunched under the arms.
