to frog or not to frog?


waaaaa! I think my Wicked is too big! I'm an orphan knitter (no LYS or knitting group in town) so I depend on the blogging community for help. If you have time please take a peek at my blog for details and a bigger picture and leave your thoughts. Thank you so much!

I'm thinking you should try 6's & make sure to do the decreases. I knit a Wicked in DK & Worsted, and the worsted weight is looser/bigger than the DK version. If you still don't like the fit after that...I would (brace yourself) frog it and go down a pattern size. - I used size 6 needles on both my sweaters btw.
Hope this helps and what you have so far does look great:)

I would go down a size...it looks a little baggy in the shoulders. I often do the same thing, make it bigger rather than frog and never wear it. What about starting again in a smaller size using the other balls of wool? Then if the smaller doesn't eork at least you still have the bigger one started and well under way

I think it looks alright! I guess it depends on how 'snug' you want it ...

I think it looks good. I'd just switch to a smaller needle size now. I went back and forth with two needles to get a better fit throughout my Wicked and like the results. Actually, I'm wearing mine at work today.

Thank you to everyone who answer here and on my blog. I've decided to frog, but for the moment Wicked has been sent to the corner to think about what it did. I'm hoping by next week I'll be over my frustration enough to start over.
