Frog or Finish?

I mentioned last week that I am assessing the mass quantities of sweaters in progress around here. Here’s the 10:

This doesn’t include one baby sweater on the needles.

The first one is #77 Vine Lace Top-Down Cardigan by SweaterBabe [ravelry]. My version is knit at a tighter gauge but I still knit it at least one size too large for myself.


I set it aside when I finished the first sleeve and discovered exactly how ill-fitting on me it is. I picked it back up earlier this month to assess whether it was a frog or finish. I decided that I would try to fix the neckline by adding the collar and then decide.

I finished the collar last night. I picked up stitches all around the collar, worked some decreases all the way around to pull it in a bit but keep it lying flat, and then I just kept knitting until I finished the ball of yarn. It looks the way I’d hoped — so I’ve picked up the stitches for the second sleeve and hope to finish it this weekend.

It’s still about a size or two too big for me. I know a couple of people who are about a size or two larger than me and would appreciate a cardigan…
