So, I was really really proud to finish my first sweater!
But... as you might notice... it's not really finished. I picked up the exact number of stitches, but it looks like the button band has too few of them, because this weird scrunching thing happens.
This is probably the most unflattering thing that has ever been draped upon my figure. All of the endorphins from sewing the last button on disappeared when I looked at myself in the mirror. Instead of a beautiful form swathed in beautiful handknit goodness, I felt like a potato in a too-big potato sack. I have lost weight since I started knitting it, so it might just be way too big... but I would at least like to have the bottom form a straight line!
Anyway, this thing is in time out until I get the gumption to unravel the button band, cast on with more stitches, and try again.
