OK... apparently, I lied

OK...remember the last post.. when I said.. I'm done!... yeah well. NOPE.. I'm not.. I took the sweater with me to LYS... why? b/c I hated it on me.. I knew it needed blocking and was going to have THEM do it for me.. So I got there put it on and looked at the LYS lady.. and said.. "well?".. and you know you're screwed when you get a reply.." Can I be totally honest and not hurt your feelings?".. which in my mind = '$#!&!!!' .. of course I say "ABSOLUTELY!".. anyhow... bottom line.. I ripped out both button bands and re-did one much WIDER.. in the middle of the other now.. and then going to modify the neck line.... so.. I"m not done.. I don't think I ever will be. and further.. once I finished I think I'll just mail it to Rachel, so it can join her 'where knitting goes to die' bin.. OR I guess I can start one of my own.. :(...

No, no, no! You mustn't think like that. Helen is going to help you, and it's going to be worn in the fall! She is no-nonsense, and she's not going to tolerate self-loathing and pity. Nope. Just rip and reknit! (Cuz I would not want to see what she might do to you if she thought otherwise...)

Well, my f&f swatch could use some company in the bin... but I think you're too far gone to stop now. You're almost there, and you'll have a gorgeous sweater to wear for fall!
