A victory.

Once, in the throes of knitting agony, I summoned every ounce of courage I could muster, and asked for help. And you? You were there; you came through for me. And I was so grateful, I cried for days and tattooed each and every one of your names on my neck. And then, in the honored tradition of dysfunctional families everywhere, we never spoke of it again.

Until today!

I hereby reveal to you . . . Sizzle!

Sizzle (Knit & Tonic)

Sizzle (Knit & Tonic)

(I actually finished it before we went to Hawaii. Like, four o’clock in the morning, on the day we left.)

In future, I will put in a few more short rows. Not that the fabric-stretching-perilously-to-cover-the-enormous-boobs look doesn’t work for me, but I’d like to maybe be able to wear my tops to work, too.

    Having seen Sizzle in person, I would just like to say that the fabric-stretching-perilously-to-cover-the-enormous-boobs really worked for me.

    Wow, it looks great. I am totally inspired to try to make a fitted sweater for winter now. I will be calling for enormous boob/short row advice!

    Wow, I wondered how this went! I bow down to you for finishing what you started.

    I think you should post a little sticky or something on all you learned about working with short row shaping so that the rest of us boobalicious peeps can learn.

    Maybe you should knit a collar and a leash for those puppies.

    Wow, awesome job! From what I can tell you are actually built almost exactly like me (except I have a stoopid 30″ waist and the day MINE gets down to 28″ you will hear the whooping and hollering all the way from San Diego)..so do you want to sell me a sweater, or what?? 😉

    Btw, this is Debangel from Phantom’s site, and I wanted to double-check your email addy to send you that Sicilian bird poem/nursery rhyme/thing. Typo, or is it really ucc3lina with the “3” instead of the “e”?
