I've been going through and organizing my stash and some old projects and I came across my second Amiga cardigan. I knit this back in 2013, and it was the second time I'd knit this particular yarn-originally it had been a Kaleidescope, but that was a poor pattern choice for a cotton/silk blend, so I reclaimed it. This pattern worked a lot better for this yarn, but I've only worn it once or twice, and I'm really not happy with it overall.
The colors are a bit overwhelming, the sleeves are way too long and too loose for a cropped-sleeve sweater, and the sweater is just way too short overall. I still have some of this yarn left over, so I'm now debating if it's worth trying to fix this sweater. I'd rip the sleeves back to elbow length, and keep them more fitted to my arm, and I'd lengthen the sweater as much as possible-hopefully to the hip.
My main debate right now is whether it's worth trying to fix this-I'm hoping that these mods would make it a lot more wearable, and I'm counting on being able to rock the wild colors with a pair of jeans once the sweater is a better shape. On the flip side, it's a lot of work to go through to end up with a third unwearable sweater if it doesn't work out.
So help a gal out-is it worth it to rip back and maybe (finally) get a wearable sweater?
