I didn't notice anything unusual about the hang. I think you're right....it could be the way she was standing. Another thought....maybe her fronts weren't the same length. Or maybe blocking stretched something out of proportion. I didn't see the comment, or the Mulled Cider you mentioned.
Mine fits perfect. Prolly won't close the leaf frog all the time, but at least I have the option. Closing one lone frog isn't stressful.
You are right...the original Mulled Cider is more rustic, especially in that wonderful color, which isn't that great on my complexion. Besides, I didn't have that color in my stash. Trying to knit 100% from stash this year.
I didn't think about mine being dressier, but I suppose that's true, with the deep dark (almost chocolate) wine red tweed, plus the little leaf frog.
My collar looks mandarin when it's just laying there, but it doesn't fit like a mandarin. I gotta model it tomorrow or Friday, when hubby is out of town at that 4 day semi-annual mega swapmeet in Packwood, Wa. I haven't got the fortitude for it. Acres and acres and literal ACRES of stuff, mostly man stuff. :wall:
