Sometimes you just have to start over

March is the month of Spring, the promise of a new beginning and the promise of summer. March is also the month where I work on the Peony Cardigan.
Not my photo. This is the project photo from Ravelry.
I really love this cardigan. I have to love it being the fact that I have been trying to make it since Spring of 2012. I especially have to love it because after working on it this month and getting past the third set of button holes I am starting it over.
Work In Progress
Even with all my reservations on the yarn due to my not so great experience with the brand I must admit that the color is beautiful and it makes a wonderful fabric. Of course cell phone photos do not do the color any justice. 
The problem
Exhibit A (photo above) shows the issue that is causing my anxiety and the reason why I have to start over. The hole on the seam of the sleeve. The hole that looks like the size of Texas on my perfectly stitched cardigan. Yes, I know it is not really that big the not so logical side of me sees it different.
This is what it should look like
Now the picture above perfectly illustrates what the seam of the sleeve should look like. See what I mean? There is no way that I can possibly continue to work on this project when I have two (did I mention there is another hole on the other side of the first hole?) holes mocking me.

So my March project will continue past the month of March, I am sure it will also continue past the month of April since I will be working on the Rose Garden Shawl next month. I just hope that this project will be completed by Fall so that I can finally wear it.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
