Not so much. But how about that sweater?
This is my first ever sweater for myself. I run way too hot for sweaters but this yarn is soft enough to wear next to my skin, eliminating the need for an extra layer. It's a simple top-down raglan based on this pattern but given that I lack a cylindrical upper body, I resorted to a bit of completely made up shaping and got lucky because it worked out perfectly. There's enough space where I need it without huge saggy shoulders. The arms are short enough and the waist ribbing is snug enough to keep the sweater from stretching and dragging. I'm so happy with this sweater that I don't even mind having knit it twice.
