The Deep V for ME

I’m going to be truthful here. I don’t like my body. Sorry for all the learn to love it stuff; I am at least 50 lbs over what I want to be. Somehow in the last month or so, as I pull out the turtleneck baggy sweaters I made, I look in the mirror and don’t like it. But a good friend of mine (her name is ZEN) moved back to town, we were out looking at sweater patterns together and she looked at me and said “Why do you always hide your self. You have a wonderful voluptuous figure don’t hide it.” Some friend huh. So the next day I got up and put on the sweater with the 5X5 rib and DH looked at me and said “I love how that sweater flows over your breasts”!!!!! Guess I should listen to friends more often

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usA few days later I was at Powell’s Bookstore looking for books of fashion and color, thinking maybe I would like more of what I knit if I thought about how the end product would look on ME, not just the model. I ran across “What Not to Wear” from Britain, then went to their web site and got my own recommendations for what to wear.

So yesterday morning I headed out to the local Mall knowing there were President’s Day sales and with my 15% extra off. I think the sales clerk hates me. I must have tried on 150 things. Pants, tops, jackets. In the end, I have to dump the boxy turtlenecks cause they just make me took bad. So I ended up with boot cut pants, black and jeans, a deep V black sweater, and a scoop neck tee and boots. And you know in the end, I like how I look, may not love the body underneath, but the outside looked kind of voluptuous.

Now I am combing my half knit Top Secret with a deep V neck rather than that high turtleneck. I went on a hunt for patterns that would suit my new style. Boy there are none in my house. Is that because I always bought boxy turtleneck patterns? Belle Epoque, with out the ribbon.Then I have to find something with a waist and a low neckline for bulky yarn I was going to use for Banff. And I may take my Jo Sharp green yarn from stash and make the wrap sweater from SnB Nation. Anyone have any other good wrap sweaters patterns?

Oh, forgot to tell you DH took me out to this local dive we like for burger and beer late afternoon, and he wanted to dance when a good song came one. Guess he liked the new outfit.
