I feel like such a slacker. I've been posting on this board for awhile, and yet no raglan on the needles. I will someday I swear.
  You are not alone there.  I got all revved up about it, but I have some WIPs that must be finished first.  Cry  I like to have a few projects at once, but 7 is too many.  Once the count gets that high I begin to forget that some of them exist - I find them when rummaging thru my stash and then I feel bad about it.

Ew, I just realized that my tank is ripped, poo.

I love your color combo! Looks great!

No real suggestions, but maybe blocking will help? Huh

'Tis acrylic, cause I'm a cheapo.  Do you think it would work if I did a few extra decreases, or would that make it look odd?

Are you saying that the back is bunching? All I could say is work with it and decrease like you were thinking, frog to the problem point and start over, or maybe sew in some darts when the piece is completed.

Seika, that color combo is awesome, I'm absolutely in love with it.  Your sweater is looking great so far, good job!

Do extra decreases if you can, or darts where needed ( I think Knitter's daily has an article on that particular topic).

ok so i'm almost done-unfortunately my striping didn't end right so i think i have to do an extra stripe sequence in order to get it to the correct length-which in the end i think will make it a little too long-we'll see.  Awesome and easy pattern!  i've just completely slowed down on working on it, because this part is the boring knit knit knit knit knit part!   Wink
Has anyone else had any issues with thier striping sequence making it a wee bit long?  I know i can adjust it-i'm just more of a deal with it type of girl  Tongue

hopefully it wont be much longer to finish...it's only taken a week of evening-only knitting to get this far...now the only questions is: elbow length or long sleeves?
