After looking at this from many angles, I came to the decision to frog everything up until this point and to re-do it in the smallest size. I toyed with the idea of doing a long section of ribbing at the bottom and letting the top part blouse out a bit, but decided that was a cop-out to what I really wanted this sweater to be. Which is like the one in the photo.
I've never frogged a project at this point before. I usually shut my eyes, keep knitting, and hope for the best. And more than once that has lead to finished projects that I'm less-than-thrilled with. I must say, it was rather liberating to get to that stage where there's no turning back.
This photo shows the current state of Glee. Hard to believe a whole sweater's-worth of yarn is sitting here in these two grapefruit-sized balls of yarn, right?
