Tonight I am ripping out a wool sweater-jacket I knit for one of the grandchildren. My daughter picked out the pattern, and I modified it slightly (neither of us liked the original sleeves). Finished, however, I realized it was not a flattering jacket! I checked all my gauges and finished measurements (all were as they should be). It simply didn’t look good. So I’ll skein, wash, reset the twist/get the kinks out and rewind into balls. It’s a nice rhubarb-colored machine washable wool, so I will use it in another project!
