I've lost that loving feeling....

This project is on the verge of hibernation status. I think I know why. It's hard to see the value of a cardigan that doesn't actually close down the center! This functionality is particularly important since I am visiting Ohio and it's COLD here!!

(The pattern actually comes much closer in the center- this is a fit problem.)

But, I have been slogging away, and I was almost done with the body of the sweater. I know you are supposed to be able to try on the sweater as you go, but I usually don't. Ridiculous, really. Sure, I had many signs the fit would not be a good one- for example, my gauge was way off. (You know, the little details!)

To the frog pond it goes....but not for long. I have already cast on and just divided for the sleeve. I decided to forge ahead and see how it goes. I love the yarn, so we'll see.
