First I made Gretel.
Then it was too big.
Then I did surgery, and after a lot of cutting (gulp), picking up stitches, and reknitting, it was smaller.
But then the band was too loose.
So I sewed in some elastic.
But then I didn't like the way it looked.
So I picked up stitches and knit a facing.
But I cast that off too tightly.
And now I can't get it over my head.
