It's a crapshoot

This thing called knitting is a crapshoot.  Do you recall this?

Please note how nicely the sweater fits.  Like a glove, I tell you.

Which is really great, except I was kind of knitting it so it would fit in fall when you will really need a sweater.  Even the sleeves fit perfectly now.  

It seemed small, and I was putting it down to the missing 4 stitches at the underarms, but while they would have given the body the extra room it requires, it would not have given me the growth room I was hoping to put into this sweater.  The sleeves are much too narrow too.

So, back to the drawing board.  The debate is do I unravel this entire garment or do I see if I can find the same yarn because I really really love the way it felt and mommy liked it too, or do I unravel and just reknit what I have.  The sweater would fit my other wee boy with some growth allowance in it.  Marcus is a tiny thing in comparison and those few months younger mean it will still fit in fall.

Ugh.  I hate starting a week like that, but uggh.
