Beltane is a bust. This morning the sweater was progressing nicely.

Then I started obsessing thinking about an unsightly patch of unevenly spun yarn at the waist. I'd managed to clip out others, but somehow this got past me. It made me unhappy.

It's important to have happy handknits, so this evening Beltane has been resolved back into its elements. I'll give them a restorative bath when I finish blogging.

I think it's better this way. I made a lot of modifications to Beltane, particularly to the (oh teh irony) bust darts. Yet even with that level of engagement, I just wasn't feeling the love.
