If you ask me how I feel about Cressida, I'm going to tell you this is my least favourite FO, ever! I'm so disapointed with her. Check out those huge sleeves. They looked like crap! My gauge was right on, nope definitely not the pattern. Did I cast on a bigger sleeve? Can't be!... On friday night, I spend the whole evening trying to figure out what went wrong with her. And of course, I couldn't find any fault. Well, who else to blame but myself. I have to admit I might have over blocked it a little...(a lot actually) Anyways, until I figure out what to do with her. I'm just going to let it sit in the closet. It's heartbreaking to see something nice turned out like crap. You think I can reblock the sweater? Is there such a thing call reverse blocking? Or perhaps, can I let it sit in the dryer for a few minutes. Will it help?
