P's Sweater

Thanks Ann, for my very first blog comment! :D

The pattern is from Tahki/Stacey Charles, Fall/Winter 2004, which doesn't seem to be shown on their site - although some of the patterns from this book are in the free patterns section (of course not this one). It's the #14 Fitted Cable Jacket, design by Rosemary Drysdale. I did start it in the medium size, make the ENTIRE back of it, held it up to my mom (who's about the same size as P) and went CRAP. Ripped the whole thing, and started the large size - then also extended the length about 2".

Apparently everything is short on P because she has a longer torso than average, and then with her swimmer shoulders, the large worked out better. :) She's actually a great swimmer, and I had the pleasure of watching her at a swim meet earlier this summer and was AMAZED - she usually gets around 2nd place at her meets, so REALLY good :D

Oooh, that sweater is so cute! Please, do post the pattern info! I could definitely see myself wearing one. Great job, I'd definitely not call you a newbie knitter. It's all in the attitude!
