View Full Version : Tubey or Hourglass?

08-24-2007, 01:36 PM
I love both sweaters but can only get the yarn for one of them. The yarn I'm getting is a discontinued Joann's brand (Sensations Dolcetto). It's a 50/50 wool/cotton blend and I hope to get it in a lovely blue/gray color.

One concern I have is I am veeerrrryyy long waisted - I normally have to add 2-3 inches to the length of any sweater I make to get it to be hip length.

Which sweater do you think would be best suited to the yarn I'm getting and my figure?

Thanks for indulging me. :happydance:

ETA I'm also considering the Cameo V-neck pullover.

Here are the links for the sweaters.

And the Hourglass sweater is in Last Minute Knitted Gifts, I think.

It is - I have the book, I just don't have a pic of it scanned in my computer and I didn't want to use a random pic from the internet.

Another vote for Tubey. It could just be that the photo of Hourglass doesn't do it justice, but it just doesn't appeal to me. I do love the cables around the neckline in the Cameo, but Tubey has a more flattering fit.
