Very Annoying Problem with My Ingenue
As you can see I've been working hard on my Ingenue...I've been substitute teaching all week and the kids have been reading a lot so I can knit while they read.
The first Ingenue I made was dark blue so this annoying problem wasn't evident...in this lovely dusty rose it is huge.
There are decreases right in the front and back to give some waist shaping. I've already ripped it out once as the SSKs are kind of bulky and obvious.
The K2tog are subtle...blend in.
So here's the question...do I just do K2Tog instead of the SSK in that one spot???? I realize they are different slants for shaping but they really look awful and they are in an obvious place - right on the girls.
I think I'll work on something else today and let this sit before ripping out 5 inches again. I'd appreciate any advice.
