I just finished another sweater for KnitPicks - it's the "Sloppy Joe" from the new Louisa Harding book, which is due out next month. I got the yarn on September 2nd, and just darned in the ends...it's due in Washington State on Friday!

I just posted the pictures on my blog.

I like that, though I coudn't wear it with that straight neckline across the neck. I wonder why she called it Sloppy Joe? It looks like it is well fitted and neat to me.

Oh, I like it. I like the look better that what I saw on the pattern. And I agree, it doesn't look at all sloppy!

The actual pattern has the sweater being modeled on a VERY thin model, and it hangs straight down. The sloppy joe sweater, from what I understand, was a style in the late 50's/early 60's that was a "rebound" from the tight angora twin-set look. I'm a little bit "fluffier" than the model in the book, so it's more fitted on me. And - if you spill something on the front of yourself, you can just turn the sweater around, because the front and the back are identical!

Kim it looks fantastic! I love the color too. I only WISH I had half of your "fluff"!

(Mine's there, just not in the right places.[:00])

Hope those twerps get what's coming to them for busting your window too. Dirty rats. [**]

Now comes the interesting part - which model they decide to use for the sweater. More than once I've cringed when the catalog comes out (for instance, the Princess sweater and the Hoodie Pullover that's in this week's ad), because the sweaters don't look nearly as nice as they could... we'll see how they decide to photograph this one.

I'll bet this sweater looks a lot better on you than it will on the starving model!
