I LOVE Loop-D-Loop!! As Clara was talking about in our email...Teva just goes above & beyond our "normal" knitting & u sure step out of what many people perceive as "knitting"....I ordered mine some time ago from a book club after buying a pattern or 2 off of Teva's website & emailed with her a bit...she's a sweet person to boot!! Thumbs up all the way on her book!!

There's a long ongoing thread here on the forums (where Teva herself posts regularly!) regarding Loop-D-Loop. I agree that it's a book of very innovative and inspiring designs.

I just checked her website, and she considers a size 14-16 to be extra large. To me, that's a typical New York designer. If you're not skinny, don't bother. Too bad her designs aren't designed for real-size people.

I just checked this book at at the store the on Monday night, and I loved it! Not only the designs, but the pictures really are something to marvel at. I was really close to buying it, but I have to wait a little longer.(we all know how we have to watch the knitting budget.)

But, the Ballet T-shirt for instance is meant to stretch a ton. So, it has negative ease. Also, yes, some people do have a 28" chest.

A couple of my nieces are small like that. Also, even though I am a plus sized fat ass, many of the designs would look nasty on a larger size. I like what Teva did with the designs.
