The Demise of a Sweater

Above: Evening Shell in Twinkle Handknit Soft Chunky (Sapphire)
It's really such a shame that I have to pull this sweater apart, again. The first time I knitted it, I knitted a large, because that's supposed to be the size that fits me, but it was HUGE. Too big for Paul, in fact. So, I pulled it all out and re-knit, this time I knit the smallest size. Well, it fits, but it looks like a Kevlar vest--seriously ugly. And it looks so cute when it's not being worn! I originally made it because (1) I liked it and (2) it called for 3 skeins, which I had left over from making my Best Friend Cardigan (pics coming soon). I've decided to just make another Diamond Scarf (see below). I've already made one for Erika in Raspberry, but this one will be for me. I really really like the yarn. It's 100% merino and is the softest thing ever. I just hate the instructions in Twinkle's Big City Knits. They are just crap, crap, crap. Thankfully, there are no mistakes in the scarf pattern.
I'm so glad it's Friday. Yay, weekend! I still have to grade term papers (yuck!) and write my Directed Readings paper, so I won't get to have fun all weekend. How disappointing!
