pardon the messy hair! :-)

That looks soo good on you!! Great job!! :D

:cheering: That's awesome! I am very impressed!!! And your hair doesn't look that messy. You should see mine after wearing a helmet all day.

You know... after seeing all of these I've noticed that the change in color really changes the "mood" of the sweater. :thinking: You could do a dressy one and a casual one and a "wear with blue jeans" one... it's a really great pattern that "looks" different depending on the color of yarn you choose. Of course... Andrea would probably fall over in a faint if anyone suggests she make multiples of this! ;)

You did awesome Hildie! Keep us posted on the reactions that you get. You are really tempting me to give this pattern a try. I'm not convinced but I am tempted.

That looks wonderful Hildie!! :cheering: :cheering: If you had bothered to comb your hair, the entire picture would have been great. :rofling:

I seriously thought that a well-endowed woman wouldn't look good in this sweater, but you've proven me totally wrong!!

That was beautiful....great going :happydance:

That looks Maahhhvolous!

I love the way that your sweater looks and fits you! Whenever I've looked at that pattern I've worried that my bra strap would show :shock: Aren't I a prude??? Anyway, your looks like it wouldn't have that issue. Did you do something different??


04-03-2006, 09:21 PM
Well, CHECK YOU OUT in that FANTASTIC Tubey with your little teeny tiny waistline!! :eyebrow:

YOU look HOTTTTT! :heart:

REALLY great job, Hild!!!!!!!

Well crap. Now I have to make one, since it looks so good on you. Thanks a lot, Hildie. :doh: :roflhard:

:cheering: WTG! It looks awesome! I love the colors! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-03-2006, 10:27 PM
Awesome sweater! I haven't seen pictures of you since the big meeting between you and Kelly last year, when we saw the butt pictures of the two of you. :rofling: Anyhoo, you look majorly thinner! :thumbsup:

04-03-2006, 11:00 PM
Hildie I love it!! What size did you make cause it looks like it would be the right one for me. I've seen so many posts about people making theirs too big and I don't want to face that!!
You look great!!

04-03-2006, 11:41 PM
Gorgeous -- great color combo!

04-04-2006, 05:32 AM
So very pretty!!!

That sweater looks great on you. You did an awesome job.

04-04-2006, 09:21 AM
Great job Hildie!!

04-04-2006, 09:29 AM
Wow, looks terrific! I was't gonna be so....ahem...blunt as Ingy so I'll just say how much I like how it shows off yer fabulous figure. I wish my body curved like that. I'm all one size all around like a tube :rollseyes:

04-04-2006, 09:30 AM
Love that color green and it looks fabulous on you!!

04-04-2006, 02:35 PM
Thanks everyone! Glad you approve Ingy. :-)

:roflhard: femmy!

kimmie, I'm not WEARING a bra, that's why you can't see the straps :-)

Seriously, though, I did some BO decreases at the edges (if i had done more it wouldn't have been so buncy in the front), and then just made sure I wore a bra that has wide-set straps (you didn't really think I was that perky, did you?)

The trick to making your waist look smaller is to stand at a slight angle to the camera :-) I took about 20 pictures of myself hahaha.

I "created" one size bigger, Nina, but I probablly didn't need to. It is SUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER stretchy. I realized this about 4 inches into the body tube, and I made the waist smaller by using a smaller needle size there. I am seriously disproportionate... I think my waist is 11 or 12 inches smaller than my hips and chest.

Renna, thanks for the compliment!! :heart:

I think it looks great, Hildie!!! :cheering:

It looks great! :thumbsup:

DISproportionate? :shock: Dearrie, those are perfect proportions, of which few can boast! :thumbsup:

04-04-2006, 08:18 PM
Hildie, it looks great and it looks great on you! You should be really proud! And, I don't think we would have noticed that you weren't wearing a bra either. :rofling:

04-04-2006, 09:33 PM

pardon the messy hair! :-) :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: GREAT GOING HILDIE!!!! Nice job :thumbsup:

04-04-2006, 10:00 PM

YAY!! Hildie--I LOVE TUBEY and it looks so good on you and you look so good in it, you make a GREAT PAIR!! (and you have a great pair to go along with the pair of you!) :D

04-13-2006, 05:50 PM
Wow, I wasn't diggin' the tubey when I saw it on knitty, but with the different colors, I'm lovin' it too! It helps seeing it on a "well endowed" woman, too -- I'm not always sure what will work well with my body type.

04-13-2006, 07:04 PM
Wow, I'm just FINALLY seeing this Hildie! It looks wonderful!!! :heart: :heart: :heart: 'n it!

04-13-2006, 08:36 PM
gosh that looks great. I've been saving this pattern, printed off at work and I'm ready to make it - well I WILL be as soon as I'm done with the 3 scarves I have on the go!

I didn't quite understand part of the pattern, I need to read it again - have left it with my mother so hopefully she can explain the bits I don't get =P If not I may be back here to ask you!

That colour looks fab on you!

04-13-2006, 09:08 PM
You did a great job and it shows off your "hour-glass" figure beautifully. The touselled hair looks great too. :thumbsup:

04-13-2006, 10:27 PM
thank you thank you thank you!!!!

FYI, I didn't understand the directions either. I ended up knitting the boob tube part separately and then attaching it to the arm tube. I was worried it wasn't going to work, but in hindsight I think it worked better because I was able to combat some of the problems others had with it--bunching in the back, bagging in the front. I didn't solve EVERY problem, but it was easier to fix things since they were separate pieces.

Looks great on you! The more I see of this sweater, the more I think I need to make it.
