Sweetheart Come be frogged

Ok, so its just too big. A little bit big I can manage, but this? Its one of those "tuck your knees in your sweater" sweaters.
Here's what I figured out... Ok, so strrrrretch your swatch. If its really stretchy, then there's gonna be an issue with the sizing. Turns out this particular fabric stretches almost DOUBLE. Negative ease. There. I said it. Thats what I now have to learn to comprehend. My girlfriend says its body image, and my knitting "style".

So. Rip it. Rip it. Take it to the Frog and Rip it.

Ok, Im keeping the cable part on the front and back, and the sleeves (which are fine). Im just re-doing the body.

And I was so proud it was finished!
