When I decided to knit Carolyn, from the most recent issue of Knitty, I could not help but to hum the Lowest of the Low song.
Even after the disappointment with the Grecian Plait (I almost typed 'urn') sweater, I'm on a sweater kick. Which completely surprises me, because after my Monster Sweater from a couple years back I swore them off from my knitting repertoire. The Monster Sweater was so huge that it was big on my friend M.T. who's 6'7″. But I know what I did wrong with Grecian Plait, I thought my bust was smaller than it really is. Whoops. No wonder Greacian Plait didn't fit.
I've had to adjust Carolyn a little bit because the yarn I have, a nice blue and pale orange (even though the photo makes it look golden yellow), which I think is very retro and fun, is slightly thinner than what the pattern calls for. Hopefully it'll all work out, otherwise it'll make someone a really nice gift.
