Spicy Tee Progress
I must heretofore make a commitment to myself to only knit sweaters of worsted weight or lighter. Bulky is not becoming, no matter how nice it looks in the picture. There are professionals paid to make those sweaters look flattering, plus the models are skinnier, taller, and more long-waisted than I am.
Also, short-sleeved sweaters? Not so practical. Clearly, I am far too susceptible to lovely knitting photography that makes every garment look appealing and practical.
That being said, I think this is coming out pretty well. It was touch and go for a while as I wasn't sure whether it was coming out the right size, or if the fabric was too drapy, so I was debating ripping it out and reknitting on smaller needles. I put it aside for a while to distance myself (hence the lack of progress) and in the end I decided to just keep going. We'll see how it turns out. It should be finished soon!
