Snip Snip!

cut!

After spending Sunday evening watching episodes of er online (a show I haven’t watched in years, but watched all through college), I decided to cut the sweater.

It was pretty simple. I strung waste yarn through the stitches at the new edge, then snipped the yarn just before that point and methodically removed the section I didn’t want. Done!

Then I had to rip back the other side of the sleeve so that the front/back match. Now I’m moving along the center back of the sweater, which I suspect I need to knit a few more pattern repeats of now to make it all correct. I also anticipate adjusting the asymmetric front so that it is even more asymmetric due to the width of the front panel.

Or I suppose I could cut it as well…

    eeek! That would scare me to death. I feel like Linus watching Lucy carve that pumpkin. “You didn’t tell me you were gonna kill it!” lol
