I'm a Pinup Queen

I finished the pinup queen sweater from Stitch 'n Bitch. I'm not completely happy with it, but I am glad that it is done. Please excuse the weird face. I was beginning to think the self timer wasn't working when, snap, it takes the picture. I look really pissed off or something. Not so. I just didn't expect the picture right then.






I think it makes me look chubbier than I really am. Maybe it'll look better with a nice pair of jeans rather than my pajama pants. I also have a cute lace camisole on the way to wear under it. This is a sexy sweater pattern, but I didn't think it would be quite so sexy. The v neck is a little deeper than I expected. I am really pleased with my dye job on my hair though. I seem to like it better the more unnatural a shade of red it is.

I think it looks nice, and the color is great on you. I have some yarn in my stash put aside for this.

I LOVE your hair color! That unnatural red looks great on you! Makes me want to go back to my old reds! (One of the colors was called "Drop Dead Red"!)

Thanks girls. I like it much better now. A decent bra and cute jeans made a wold of difference. It's still a little bigger of a neckline than I wanted, and the fabric is a little bulkier that I expected, but that's what happens when you knit with something from the stash that's not AT ALL like what the pattern calls for.

Hey I love this!
I have just bought the snb book, and this wasn't on my list of things to knit but now I've seen yours I think I've changed my mind!
Great job =)

I know I'm late for this one but I love the sweater! I'm getting ready to start it for myself and it's exciting to see successful ones on other people.
