It seems to depend on the exact variant of the main pattern you have on the needles and the yarn chosen. I've got both the LB and the Vogue one OTN, and I've yet to decide which one I like better enough to finish. I'm leaning toward the LB one, but the d*** pattern is written so badly its very frustrating.

Some of the girls on Ravelry mentioned the Pigouin one wasn't working out as well as they thought, but the Miss Twix? Twiss? (sp?) one was turning out really cute.

And it may be one of those sweaters where if you strike the standard model pose, its just not going to look good. Thankfully, I don't model in my line of work and will be perfectly happy with how it looks on normal people  Smiley

I haven't posted in a while but, I'm still working on mine.  I can't believe I've had this thing on the needles for 6 months now.  It's taking me FOREVER.  I'm almost done the body, then I still have to do the arms.  I'm a pretty slow knitter anyway and all these cables certainly aren't helping me go any faster. (The fact that the pattern is so badly written and so full of errors doesn't help either.)  I just hope I like it when I'm finally finished.

Ha!  My thoughts exactly.  I'll consider myself lucky if I get to wear mine NEXT winter.  After all this discussion over how flattering it is (or isn't) I'm worried about whether I'll even like it by the time it's (finally) done.

I just finished the body of mine (finally).  I tried it on and I'm actually quite pleased with the fit.  I think it looks pretty cute so I'm glad that I decided to stick with it.  Now I just have to get started on the sleeves.

Mine's kinda been on hold due to swap overload and charity knitting needs. I hope to get back to it, and like Teela said, be able to wear it NEXT winter!  Shocked
