Juuuust in time for the heat and humidity.   I finally finished Trek from Rowan 37.

I really love this sweater, but it ended up just a bit too big for me.  *sigh*



Don't suppose there's anyway to shrink this safely?  Just a smidgen?

See my blog entry for more details.

I think it looks great!! I was actually going to attempt either trek or hike this summer.

Before frogging it you might want to try taking your seems in at the side.

Wow! 

Um, if it's too big for you, I'll have it!  Smiley

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I think it looks great, but I like big cozy cardis...however, if you still want to make it smaller, here's an article that may be helpful...

That's such an awesome sweater!  I was checking out your blog and was wondering how it was going to turn out and it's beautimous!  Way to go :-)

I've seen a lot of blogs for people who were working on Trek, but had no idea what the finished product would look like. Gorgeous!!!

It's beautiful.  Really, Trebuchet, you have the best taste!  It actually doesn't look that big in the picture, definitely still wearable!  Good luck if/when you decide to shrink that puppy!

Oh, so gorgeous! I hate it when things turn out differently than you thought they would. Though I guess it's better it's too big than too small. You can still fit in it, even if it hangs.
