I took some pictures, but not quite like what I had hoped. I honestly forgot to take pictures until I had already started taking out the sleeve.
It fits, but it's too short, the bottom rolls, the neckline is too wide and gaps, and the sleeves are a bit snug. It sounds like there's so many problems, but the exciting thing is that it fits in the right places. You have no idea how exciting that is. I do know that I could just take out the sleeves, undo the neck, and fix that, and then pick out the bottom and add some length. Instead, I took the longer route. I undid basically the whole thing. I left 2 rows on the bottom. I know, it sounds insane. And I know it's the harder road. However, I enjoyed the knitting. I enjoyed the endless miles of stockinette. It was great mindless knitting. It was terrific for watching TV and watching the kids outside. So, I did it.
I finished the Multnomah shawl.
I haven't blocked it yet, because I'm having issues with it. All the shawls I make turn out too short. I keep hoping they will be longer, and I keep hoping in vain. Maybe the next one I make I need to make out of bulky yarn and double it. Or maybe it's the patterns I'm using. Do you have a suggestion?
