Simply Knitted Finished Object

I don't want to jump the gun but I thought that since SKB was in the lead in the votes that I would post this link to the FO.

She used Cascade Pima Silk for the short sleeved version. I don't know about the long sleeved one (yes she is making two!) but it looks so clean, neat, and beautiful. I think this is going to be a great KAL is this pattern wins.

very pretty. i've been checking out that one as well as the (27-page) craftster kal. i think if this wins, it's worth the investment in some really fine yarn, if not in the tilli thomas itself.
i do think that this sweater is a great example of how little choices can make a big difference in flattering one's body. where those insets fall on the arms is exactly the point that will be emphasized, especially--but by no means only--in the short-sleeved version. if the wearer has heavy arms, the knitter really does not want to knit the short-sleeved version, and even in the long-sleeved version, the wants to be careful to ensure that the inset does not squeeze in, creating a bubble above or below that emphasizes a bulge. the knitter might opt to skip the lace on the sleeves altogether, or attach it skipping the purl rolls, which add a lot of bulk.
