Sometimes it's better just to to start again! There were a couple of things that I really didn't like about my new sweater....I loved the shape of the sleeves, but disliked the untidy increase stitches...I loved the neat increase/decreases on the body, but disliked the shape!!! Fussy as, right? :-)
I'd left my knitting for a few days, and when I picked it up again, decided that the sleeves really would bug me too much...sooo, back to the drawing board :-D
