I finally finished Wicked! Now if I were a monogamous knitter or knit as fast as some other people, this would have been done ages ago! I’m very happy with how it turned out although I’m not sure I’m make anything with all that stockinette again, holy moly! that’s a lot of mindless knitting. Though in all fairness I frogged back at least 3 times for more than a couple of inches, so that didn’t help. But I do have a sweater I’ll definitely wear so it was worth it. The last two balls of ArtYarns Supermerino were from a different dye lot but I don’t think it’s that noticeable as it starts two rounds before the seed stitching.
I couldn’t get a picture where I was not making a stupid face so I just cut off my head !
- Cast on Jan 23rd or around there.
- Pattern : Wicked from Zephyr Style
- Yarn : Artyarns Supermerino
- Needles : KnitPicks Options
- Cast On : Jan 23rdish
- Weaving In – technically not done, and this week is f’ing crazy so no idea when it will be blocked.
- Knit until joining under the arms at which point I decided it was too big, and started completely over. Also frogged back 5 inches after realizing I didn’t like my decreases. It seems like this took forever, but I really wasn’t working on it all the time.
As a side note, I ordered this yarn from Sarah’s Yarns and was very happy with the customer service. When I ordered my two additional skeins the wrong color was accidently sent. No big deal, it happens, Sarah was so nice and friendly to work with getting the situation fixed! She sent out the correct yarn with a SASE to return the wrong color. I definitely recommend her.
On the other hand I ordered my yarn for the Fitted Knits KAL from somewhere else. I was sent a completely wrong yarn, when I called the customer service department and said nicely that there was a problem with my order, the person had a poor attitude, very much “what do you want”. It got only slightly better when she realized they had completely screwed up. To get my correct yarn they told me they could either charge me for the yarn again and mail it out or they would wait until I returned the wrong yarn and send the correct yarn. Plus they were very clear they would only refund the cost of parcel post. Um, that is the slowest possible way to ship stuff which means I will be waiting every longer to get the correct yarn. Nice, I love it when companies show you they appreciate your business by treating you like shit while fixing their screw up. Needless to say despite the rather large sale they announced today I wont be ordering from them again. For me customer service counts I don’t care how cheap your stuff is, and I mean it (just ask Walmart when the last time I graced their doors)
