All that was left

26 October 13 - 22:32 This is all that was left. So the ripping and reknitting can be declared a success.

The sleeves currently end just below the elbows and the body reaches the hips. The v-neck is quite wide but that didn't have anything to do with the amount of yarn.

I am very curious how it will look after the first wash, as the yarn is notorious for expanding in all directions.

Weirder still: I myself am no longer doing just that. Because of the expected larger eventual outcome I knit a size M. But I am as surprised as anyone that the result just properly fits nowadays.

It's been a long way from XXL+ to here, but while staring a a seemingly stuck scale for a week now I can confirm that the surprises on the way make my day!Dit was alles wat er over was. Dus het uithalen en opnieuw doen is een succes te noemen.

De mouwen eindigen momenteel net onder de ellebogen en de romp komt nu tot de heupen. De v-hals is nogal wijd maar dat heeft dan weer niks met het gebrek aan garen te maken.

Ik ben enorm benieuwd hoe het eruit zal zien na de eerste wasbeurt, omdat dit garen berucht is om het uitdijen in alle richtingen.

Nog vreemder is dat ik dat zelf tegenwoordig niet meer doe. Vanwege het verwachte wijde eindresultaat had ik maat M gebreid. Tot mijn blijde verbazing past dat inmiddels gewoon.

Het was een lange reis van XXL+ tot hier, maar terwijl ik al een week naar een ogenschijnlijk bewegingloze weegschaal staar houden de verrassingen onderweg de lol erin!

your turn!
