currently knitting today

today i made a lot of progress on one of my current projects, pinup queen from stitch and bitch. (the first book page 207)
i knit this before in my size, but it was too big even though i knit my size and my gauge was correct. so this time i'm going to make it again in a size small. i love this pattern even though it's knit 2 purl 2 hell for a while, but the front shaping more than makes up for it. i'm knitting it in red heart worsted weight in light blue.
here's the back:
and here is the front?

notice how the bust shaping works? i love how this contours to the body. the hardest thing about this sweater is the short row shaping, but if you know how to do that, it's no problem. i'm tall so i knit an extra 3" to the length. after the front, onto the sleeves. i'll start those tomorrow.

The pic from the book looks a little spooky! I love progress pictures but always forget to take them- good job. I'm excited for the future of your blog!
