That pretty much sums up how progress on the matchmaker sweater feels sometimes:
It is actually getting longer, but it takes a while to do each row. And then of course the length added by each row is so small…but it’ll be worth it in the end, right?
I thought I’d put this photo up to show how I’ve decided to deal with the waist decreases on this piece. I was originally trying to work out a way of working the decreases into the main motifs, but I didn’t particularly like any of the options I was coming up with. So instead I came up with a completely separate decrease motif. I think the effect is pretty good–definitely better than anything else I was considering.
