Sad, Sad Post
So I finished the left front, I finished the back, and have just finished increasing for the right arm. I sewed up the seam on the left arm and back and tried it on and...
It's just not going to work. Not in this yarn. Not at this gauge. Not in this size. My yarn, Peruvian Collection Sierra Aran from Elann, is lovely. It's soft. It's way too soft. I underestimated the quality of this yarn, for the price. I figured the finished object would be much more stiff. My poor Sunrise is just a floppy pile of flop. It doesn't do the design justice. So I'm gonna rip it.
I know I'll return to this pattern, I think I bought my yarn the day I saw it. It's so beautiful. I just have to find a different yarn for it. Maybe I'll splurge and do it in the recommended yarn? We'll see.
Back to the drawing board.
