More Pink

This is the Ballet Pullover from Interweave Knits Summer 2004.

I wasn't sure if I would like this design, it's a little tight. I did not like the yarn that was called for, I thought it would make me very sweaty. So, my indecision about the pattern led me to use plain old Lion Brand Cotton-Ease. (This makes for a cheap sweater for a still unemployed lawyer) I actually got dead on gauge, when held doubled. (note: correct gauge does not happen very often in Libbyland.) Based on the measurements of the pattern, I made it 2 sizes larger than I would ordinarily knit for myself.

My thoughts thus far... It makes me look chunky. It makes my barely B body look busty, but not in a good way. I am going to finish it, and give it a good blocking before making any final judgements.

Just so you know, Rykert took this picture, and it is horrible. Makes it look much worse than it is in person. I'm going to finish the neckline and arms, and then I will report. I like the overall design, but am wondering if I should just start fresh over.
