I am not sure about this one

I finished Ms. Marigold, and there are parts I love, and parts I don't. The pattern is written very well, I loved it on the model, of course, don't we always LOVE it on the model?


I am not too shy to say that I am a busty gal, and it just makes me feel really, um, out there I guess. Like in a husky, football player, type of a way. I guess it is what I get for being such a selfish knitter.

Pattern: Ms. Marigold
Yarn: Cascade Sierra, color #10, 3 hanks
Mods: I did some waist decreases, but I did not do increases at the hip, and I wish I had. I may rip back and fix it, but I am not sure if I will put the effort into because I am not in love. It did go really fast, and looks so cute on so many of you out there.
Ah, well, back to my next selfish knit.

Oh I love it on you - you do such a wonderful job!! But if you don't like it, no sense in fixing it for yourself - love the color - what a pretty green (and you are inspiring me to try and take up knitting, really.)

It really does look great on you, and the color is so pretty!

I actually like it on you better than on the model. I think it looks great (and not too out there)!

It's very cute and figure flattering on you. Another great sweater. No one else is going to enjoy the time that went into that sweater like you, don't feel selfish. You worked hard on it.

From where I'm sitting it looks really nice on you. Great color, especially against the crisp white blouse.

Linda said...

Are you kidding? It is totally totally cute on you! How do you knit so many things so fast? You've knitted a gazillion things in the time I've knitted two!

Hilary said...

Whaaat?! Husky football player?! No way! I think it is very flattering and you look great in it. The color is to die for.

i think it looks beautiful on you, katie! but if you are not in love, then you will never wear it. so maybe go ahead and rip it back if you think you'd like it more.

It does look cute on you but I know exactly how you feel. I often have to raise necklines or I feel too "exposed". If you're having doubts, you may not end up wearing it much. Maybe you could reuse the yarn for some other cute summer top/bolero/cropped cardi.

I also think you look great in this sweater, and I love the color! But only wear it if you are comfortable with it - otherwise, you won't enjoy it!

Missy said...

I think it looks FANTASTIC! You don't look "busty" in it at all. Too cute. I hope you wear it a lot cause it suits you!

I think it looks great and the color is gorgeous! I can relate to the busty problem. Just got bra fitted the other day and I nearly passed out when the lady told me my size. Lets just say they don't carry it in the store. Oh well, things could be worse I suppose:)

Great work!
