Then again, that could provide a much-needed boost to the oversized novelty cheque industry.

I just bought yarn for this sweater and swatched for it, so if you want to knit along with me then we can get cracking.  Essentially, we post progress, discuss how the pattern is going, vent about problems, post pictures and encourage each other.

I really love this sweater, and would love to knit it. But the pattern only gives one size and it's WAY too big for me.
Maybe I'll try the dietdiary's pattern conversion thingamajig and join in anyway, although I am a little worried that I'll be wasting time on something that will never fit me...

So I'm starting out using Classic Elite Premiere http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/product_page_detail.php?category_id=1&item_id=21 which is a cotton/tencel blend.  The color is "pastoral peri[winkle] a pretty soft blue.  I hit gauge on #5 needles so I'll be using #4s for the ribbing and #5s for the body. 

I will also be doing way more short row shaping at the bust because I'm an H cup and well yes.  I also measured from the bottom of a shirt, to the bottom of my bra to help decide when I should start short row shaping.

I'll ball some yarn tonight and start ribbing while watching "Alias" and "Lost."

Did you ever get to finish this sweater?  I'm planning on knitting sweater as well just because it was designed for big busted girls like my self.
