If I change anything, it’ll be the short-row sleeves. I am a teacher and I don’t feel like short-row sleeve caps are conducive to writing on the chalkboard. Too much ride-up.

I did the short-row sleeves. I just…don’t like to knit them. :P I’ll withhold judgment until I have the second sleeve cap done. If they fit all right, they can stay.

The name of the sweater is not a reflection of my feelings about the sweater, just the name of the song I named it after by Cat Power.

“Once I wanted to be the greatest. No wind or waterfall could stall me. Then came the rush of the flood, the stars of night turned deep to dust….”

I really wanted to love this sweater. The fabric was amazing but the style isn’t for me. It’s frogged and balled, waiting to be something better loved.
