That is the question!
This is what it looked like before steeking.
What is Steeking? In case you are not up to all the "knitty" Language, it is cutting a piece of knitted garment as if it was "fabric".
In other words just cut off the bits you don't like. I figured this will either turn out great or I'll have to chalk it up to an experiment which went wrong. But I think it worked. I must say it is nerve racking to take that first snip, hours and hours of knitting coming undone is the vision one has.
I folded the part I did not like and I crochet an edge and hand sewed along the top edge, zig zagging with a machine was just not an option because of the bulk. So hand sewing it is.
The reason is that I was just not comfortable with the little "chuchy" "V" in the front and it made the front much heavier than the back so as I was wearing it the front got longer and longer and the symmetry was just off. "Frogging" (ripping it apart and starting over) was just not an option. The yarn is delicate and it would not hold up well and besides I already sewed it up so well that it is almost impossible to undo the sewing. So I STEEKED!

Ellene just informed me that what I did was not called "steeking" what I did was "cut 'n sew".
Well there you have it, I'm not quite up to the Knittese terms.
