Distraught!

I can't really believe I did it again. I made this tshirt sweater TOO BIG! Again!

Right now it is almost 17 inches long and I am just starting the increases for the chest... there are many more rows before I make the shoulders. ARG! This is why I don't make sweaters for myself. Now I am wondering do I rip out (again!) and leave off 10-12 of the 24 st st rows before increasing? Or do I completely rip out the whole thing and go down a size or even a needle size? Again I state: This is why I do not make myself sweaters. I have socks down, but bigger things frustrate me! The pattern seems easy enough and I love the color, but I had to set this project down for the weekend to make a few decisions.

In the mean time I made two small pairs of socks to put in my cic box. II figured making a little something for someone else might clear my head and an epiphany might happen. Ya think?

Oh, no! I'm so sorry your sweater is not coming out the way you want it to. I would just rip back enough rows to get the length you want, and go from there.

I totally feel your pain. Can you rip back to the length you want and go from there? Otherwise I suggest ripping and starting again with a smaller size.
The little socks are so cute!
