In Pursuit of Perfection.

Guys, I absolutely adored my Rhinebeck sweater. Loved it to bits, and I thought it looked great on me. However, it did have one teeeeensy problem. It was too short.

Not in the crop top kind of way (thankfully) but just slightly shy of the length that makes me comfortable. I like my sweaters really long and cozy, so I decided that I needed to go back and add some length. The sweater was beautiful and it deserved it! So I went back and knit ribbing until it felt like my brain was melting and coming out of my ears, but finally, look!

I’m in love. Now if it would just finish drying! I’m sure the rain and dampness isn’t helping there..

  4. Gorgeous! I love the extra long ribbing at the end. Totally worth the brain melting in my opinion!

  5. Kudos, for fixing a finished thing to make it more wearable. There are a few thing in my sweater drawer that could be lengthened or shortened for better wear. You inspire me.
