Let's get February off to a stellar start! The knit fix is on at Alison's place. What are my fixes?
Two for sure, one not so definite.
[I am clearly using photos from the Knitsmiths' site (saved on my computer first). Thank you, Alison!]
The first is my Madison Coat. The toggles and buttons (not shown in this photo) need to cinch in the coat further so that it stay closed (as shown in the photo). It's a little too cold to be running around in an unbuttoned jacket.
Second, my ever-growing sweater. This was the first sweater I finished (note that I didn't write "knit") and while it's warm and snuggly, the sleeves and body are also too long.
Third, and this is the one that I'm not sure about, is my Soy Silk tunic. Personally, I think it's a wee bit too long, although it looks fine when I wear it. This would seem to be a simple job of shortening the bottom, except that this was knit from side to side, so the bottom is not where the cast-on end is located. As inspired by a recent knitting-technique post by Bonne Marie, I think that I could do a steek to shorten the body, remove some bulk from the piece (Soy Silk is one heavy yarn), and improve the sway and drape. I could also ruin the thing by doing this.
Is it worth it? Please advise!!
