no new Ariann's?

There's been no posting for several months here and I've been wondering if anyone else hit a wall in their knitting. I'd finished the knitting of the body to the point of starting the sleeves and then knit a whole sleeve when I realized that I really didn't like the feel of the knitting. I'm using Cascade 220 and getting the recommended gauge, but I just don't care for the "mushy" feel of the knit. The pieces have been "marinating" in a bag for months now. I've decided to just bite the bullet, rip everything out, wash and reskein the yarn and begin again. This time, I'll knit at a somewhat firmer gauge and compensate by going up a size in the pattern. Here goes nothing...:)
