C'mon Bets, where's your photographer? (Howabout some natural light while your out looking for him.) Kidding aside, it is definitely a keeper. It looks awesome! Do you love it? Did the sleeves come out the same? Nice knitting!

Thanks Bets for taking the time to offer some words of wisdom, sonny boy has caller ID he doesn't answer when we call but amazingly last Monday he called his father for his birthday, couldn't tell us about the ill grandmother or call us again Oh well as the popular saying goes IT IS WHAT IT IS thank goodness for my Yarny friends!!

Woooooo looking good girlfriend. It does not look like a MD wasrhrag, it looks sexy.
I need to swatch, cause now I see it on a real person, I am liking it so much more.

There's something figure flattering about that top!

Thanks all-I think the short rows helped a lot. The sleeves don't actually MATCH stripe-wise, but there is so much going on, you don't notice.

I think the figure flattering part comes from the strong horizontal element at the bust, and Vs going down the front. Warning: The V neck is LOW-I worked 10 rows of neck edging because I didn't want to give anyone a show!

Bets, that top is great on you, the kind that you wear and people ask if you've lost weight or have been working out! The striping that meets in the middle looks perfectly symmetrical in color too; is that an accident or an effect of the JOMR method?
