I've been reading Amy Herzog's Knit to Flatter and find there is a lot of good information in there. I think you can tell from the picture that the back has waist shaping with vertical darts. I'm used to doing it at the sides, so I'm going to be interested to see how this looks. She has some very interesting techniques. Hopefully in the not to distant future it will be ready for a Friday.
Also, just in the category of just for fun, here is a picture of my husband trying to fit my small Norwegian sweater on our cat. This was not the cat's idea of fun. She is also not the smallest cat around so we could only get one sleeve on her.
It lasted all of about half a second. How on earth do people get dogs to wear sweaters?
Head over to Tami's to see what others are working on.
