If you click on the above picture and make it larger you'll see what I am talking about on the left side. While it isn't that noticeable laying flat, putting it on and stretching it out makes it just plain obvious.

Help! Knitter Down!
The Montana is not everything I had hoped it would be. I've finished the back and am working on the neck shaping but made the mistake of trying it on last night after I got home from Stitch 'n Bitch at Craft Akron. I took a look in the mirror and boy oh boy, are those ladders noticeable. It was really disappointing. I may have to reknit the entire thing at a smaller gauge or something. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what else I can do besides pull it tight. So my completion plan for Ravelympics is to just finish and block the darn thing (definitely using the beating method) and then frog the sweater if completely necessary. If anyone has any suggestions for how to fix the laddering, I am SO open to suggestions.
