Not quite what I was going for

The unfortunate thing about this sweater is that it’s a little too scratchy to wear next to the skin, but having anything more than a tank top under it makes it a little too tight through the armholes or pull strangely. Which is too bad, because I really like the way it fits and I like how it turned out. The yarn was perfectly fine to knit with and I’m not generally all that sensitive to wool. I’ll try soaking it with conditioner and see if that smooths things out a little. I don’t usually do that, since I don’t like that conditioner-y film that can stay on a sweater, but there’s nothing to lose here. If it doesn’t work, I can just pretend Michael Bay blew it up.
