alright so I finally finished my pin up queen from the first stitch and bitch. It took me about 9 months to complete and was my first sweater and it's way too big in the boob area even though I put in only half of the increases...

It was done in cascade 220 in a cream color.

It's beautiful in that sexy carefree French girl way. Good job for a first sweater!

I love it!  I've been wanting to make it but afraid I'd have to add too many increases!:-)  Did you think the size came out like the book said it should?  I'm always unsure which size to make.

Congratulations on your sweater!  And may I say that you must have quite the stamina for projects.  I have a half-finished sleeve from a sweater I started in the winter, but as soon as it was spring I was like "Why am I working on this?"  I've stuck to cat toys and scarves.  Maybe some day I'll graduate into big-time knitting Undecided

in the waist area since it's ribbing it adjust to just about any size, it's the boob that is bigger then the sizes in the book
