I’m turning this into a pullover with a buttoned bib. I need more pullovers in my closet.

The yarn is a worsted, so I’m getting 5 sts/in instead of 5.5. I think this’ll be fine because I wanted to make the 35” but wasn’t sure I’d have enough yarn. Making the xs with this slightly larger gauge should do the trick. I don’t really like the yarn, but I got it on the cheap and it looks pretty, so I’ll carry on.

So this actually turned out quickly, easily, and beautifully! Go me. :) Still not sold on the yarn, which means I might not wear it much. I’ll give it a shot or two before I start searching for someone who might actually wear it.

“…disaster’s an addiction. Waiting for the good in everything.”

Named for a Moneen song. It was a toss-up between this one and “Don’t Ever Tell Locke What He Can’t Do”, but this one won out with the lyric: “I’m not a failure now.” I thought I might be a time or two in this sweater, but I overcame. :)
