A rainy and quite lazy weekend in Berlin meant that I made a lot of progress on the infamous vest. Many hours later, many episodes of True Blood later, the first front panel is done.
I pinned the back and the front together and we had a little "fitting session". And you know what? It doesn't fit. It fits width-wise and length-wise but Matthias' arm is in the wrong position. Or more accurately, the armhole I knitted is too small. It sits too high under his underarm making it impossible to wear anything underneath. Gah!
Both the front and back panels are going to need to be re-worked with some alterations to the pattern which at the current point in time is doing my head in just thinking about. So for now I'm officially retiring the project until I can stomach unraveling work that took a season of True Blood episdoes to knit and restarting the armholes again.
Oh, and if anyone can recommend a good TV series, that'd be appreciated too.
