Knitting: Red Raglan

This sweater, a free Ravelry download, Simple Summer Tweed Top Down V-neck by Heidi Kirramaier, has been a pain in the butt.  Using 2 mm needles I started it at the end of December 2010 and have just finished it.  Lots of mistakes, kind of lopsided and terrible gauge problems.  Many of the people who knit this sweater commented that the pattern was for a big loose sweater with lots of ease.  Afraid of knitting a sloppy sweater that looks like a bag, I accidentally knit a sweater that is too tight.  Hopefully it will stretch out?
