There comes a point in every knitting project where I'm just not sure I've made the right choices. Is it a bad pattern/yarn match. Is this a bad color? Am I making the wrong size? Sometimes I push through the fear and I end up with a perfect finished knit. But more often than not I am overcome with indecision and the offending object is banished to The Abyss to be frogged at a later date.
I have reached such a crisis point with my latest knit.
Am I knitting the right size? This sweater is supposed to have negative ease, but is this too much negative ease to actually wear.
This is a shorter sweater. Maybe I shouldn't be putting cropped silhouettes on my body. Should I have modified the sweater to add a bit of length...and ease...
This yarn is super super soft, so I don't understand why the sweater is a touch itchy. Will I wear a sweater that is a touch itchy? Should I try this in a different yarn? With a different size? With modifications for a different length? Should I give up and knit a completely different project?
I'm going to go play with the baby while the project takes a time out. Maybe I will knit sleeves and block this sweater. Or maybe I will turn it back into yarn. I should probably cast on something new to keep my company while I'm waiting to make a decision. Perhaps a nice scarf or hat. Something that doesn't require a size.
