Tubey or Hourglass?
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.

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

Here are the links for the sweaters.

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.
