I finished a sweater for Mr. Aitch’s grand niece’s first birthday and I’m not happy with the result.
Funny how I didn’t see the lopsidedness of the snap band and the ridges until I took the pics.
I didn’t want to pick up all those stitches for a button band and should have just done a 4-5 stitch edging on the two front edges as I was knitting. But no. I wanted to add a fabric button band and snaps to make it easier to fasten and unfasten. Not matching up the horizontal ridges was a rookie mistake. I had such a time of getting those snaps on (I broke three in the process) that I just want to be done with it.
The party is Sunday and I’m debating on whether I should just remove the sewn on button/snap band and knit it OR give it as is and be embarrassed to gift such shoddy work. And we know that I won’t do the later…
