I knit and knit and knit away on my Audrey in Unst cardigan last night, even stayed up past my bedtime, just so I could bind off on the shoulders. I bound off, got out of bed and tried it on. And what do you know? It seems awful tight. Like, might-be-too-small awful tight. Like, I-should've-knit-the-next-size-up awful tight. It was too late for me to feel overly anguished, so I just went to bed.
I woke up thinking that since this is superwash wool, there is the possibility of it stretching. After all, I did wash and block my swatch. The pattern calls for 0-1" of negative ease. Last night it seemed a bit more than that. I'm not sure what's more disappointing: the idea of having to rip out the entire body and reknit or the fact that I was already imagining myself wearing it next week. I'm in the process of washing it right now and then am going to block it out and see what happens before I do anything drastic. I may be starting those socks sooner than I anticipated.
