I’ve been very slowly knitting my Audrey sweater. Actually my progress has come to a near stand still because I don’t know if it’s going to fit me and I don’t want to waste my time knitting something I can’t wear. So this morning when I saw Catherine’s comment, asking what size I’m making, it prompted me to get the sweater out and actually try it on.
As I’ve lamented before, trying this on isn’t all that easy since it’s knit from the bottom up. Here’s what it looks like right now:
I was right in between the size 32 and 34. The pattern said it was meant to have up to 1″ of negative ease, so I decided to go with size 32. Now I feel like I should have gone with the 34. I think it pulls across the bust a little more than I’d like. I don’t know if I will be able to comfortably wear this buttoned up, which is what I was hoping for. But this isn’t blocked, and I will be adding the center button bands. So it may work out just fine. I guess I should carry on.
