By April 13, I had finished the body of the Jazzy Beach Wrap cardigan I had been making for me and got one sleeve done. I pinned the sleeve to the body, put it on, and decided I looked way too fat in it - the horizontal stripes and a flare under the arms around the chest area are very unflattering! I was really looking forward to wearing this, but I draw the line at wearing something that so obviously makes me look larger than I am! So, the cardigan is stalled until I decide whether I want to finish it or try to pull it out, but the yarn is Bernat Boucle and it frequently snags or breaks when pulling out stitches. I'm at an impasse.
While hunting around eBay this morning, I found a color photo of the beach wrap (4th photo above) in someone's auction... Now that I see the photo larger and in color, I see that I used yarn that was too bulky. I may try again...
