Why yes, I AM just a little bit crazy

Please don't freak out on me...I'm ripping out the sweater and starting over.

Ok, stop yelling now please.

I'm not really enjoying the garter stitch portion and I've screwed up a number of places in the lace pattern that it just doesn't look good. I came across an almost identical sweater knit in stocking stitch (the Shalom Cardigan) and I'm going to make a hybrid of the two patterns. No lace. Plus I'm also going to knit it in one size down since my wool seems very stretchy (apparently Alpacas must do a lot of yoga).

My only problem? Undoing 4 1/2 balls of yarn and rewinding them by hand. Ugh.

I hope you`re all not toooooo disappointed in me.

You can enlist the Admiral in the rewinding ;-)

Are you kidding me? Of course not. Better to knit something you'll be happy to wear than something you'll stick in the closet.

I completely understand the need to do what you need to do. How many times have I done the same thing? You want to be happy with the outcome so you gotta do what you gotta do.
