So Close

For a brief moment last night, my Amazing Technicolor Dream CYOA wasn't on the needles. I finished the second sleeve, and it was, for all appearances, done.

Clearly, that's not the case anymore.

As I was nearing the end of the second sleeve yesterday, I considered how much yarn I had left, and I decided that I wanted to extend the body by another two inches. My plan for this top was to have a slightly polished sweatshirt kind of look, and I'd really like it to be more hip length since I still have yarn left.

It can be difficult to be so close to being finished with something and decide to rip back part, but I'm really going to like the extra length more. Don't get me wrong-I would have worn it with the shorter body, and I'm sure I would have loved it, but since I still have yarn, why short change myself?


  1. Such fun colors in this -- very, very pretty.

  2. Smart move- you want to actually wear it, so it's worth getting the length you want!

  3. You gotta do wha cha gotta do to be happy with the final knit.
