Jan, do you picture Chris (cacunn) as a “speak-no-evil, tropical tree frog?” :roflhard:
Chris, any plans to put a kilt on your avatar?
Hey, I use “Jack” here because having a John in a [S]room[/S] thread full of women could lead to negative impressions for all involved. :roflhard:
Okay, I admit I am not a white haired wizard from middle earth, but I hope it does communicates my interest in LOTR. When I found KH, it was Amy’s videos that caught my attention. They are very helpful for me when I wish to learn a new knit stitch or technique. In the one for the knit stitch, she recites a rhyme that finishes the stitch as “off jumps jack.” Now I’m learning more about knitting and am now working a two handed fair isle UFO. I am a visual learner, so I thought I’d post my agreement with the opening of this thread.
Back to the topic:
The sweater is flattening and not flattering. So the sweater either needed to be made larger or with more shaping. Perhaps it was intended for a pre-teen. It is not as visually pleasing as it should be.
I guess I’m learning more about fitting garments, too. :think: This current discussion reminded me of the October 16, 2008 Luann comic strip [B][U]www.comics.com/comics/luann/archive/images/luann2008183421016.gif[/U][/B] It is a continuation of a dialog that begins on Monday October 13.
And Luann and Gunther make my final point. The sweater should be made to fit properly. Perhaps the sweater was fitted for another person; KP should have sought a model with measurements closer to that of the sweater or had the sample sweater re-made to fit the model. As it is, it might lead their customers to think the pattern can’t be shapped. At the least it needed more ease, especially as a Jacket.
