Soundtrack . . .
Sometimes . . .
when your knitting is all wonky . . .
and it's twisted in a bad way . . .
and you can't believe you wasted all that time . . .
and you're ready to throw the whole damn thing into the trash can . . .
All I need is a miracle.
All I need is you.
If I ever catch up with you, I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life!
Let's just say . . . it's kind of amazing what happens to linen when you throw it into the washer and dryer . . . instead of the trash.
It's a miracle!
(Ravelry details here.)
Wow! It's beautiful, fits perfectly, and no more torque. So glad your soundtrack is "All I Need is a Miracle" and not "The Twist"!

I LOVE it! one of my friends is half done with a cardigan in Sparrow and she's totally ready to throw it away. I told her she should knit this!

Linen definitely likes to do the twist. Glad you went for the washer and dryer instead of the trash - it came out great!

Good on you for persevering on this piece, Kym. The drape is very flattering and I'd steal it in an instant;)
I am with you on the whole summer knitting thing. I knitted one linen/ cotton blend top-twice!- this summer, and ended up frogging it for another attempt next year. The other top I completed, made with Hempathy, stretched so much that it needs to be knit again in a smaller size. Gorgeous yarns, but ugh. I am seriously considering sticking with wool for future purchases.
