A question for you all...

So, I'm a bit stalled on the Rocket Gansey. The yarn I spun has a LOT of sproing, and so my horizontal measurements are waayyy different than the vertical reality. Which looks best on a short, dumpy broad hoping to look stylish in a rather conservative private university library?

Here's the short version. hmmm... I think the dpns I used to baste the shoulder seams are what's affecting the drape.

I'd have to rip out a bit, maybe reknit one section to be wider on the medium version, but I wouldn't mind. I want a sweater I feel good wearing.

So, my friends, which length looks best on me? (I was going to do the new polls feature, but I don't find the link this morning. Cie la vie.)

Great pix! I like the short version; the longer lengths just seem like a little too much sweater. The short version looks more tailored/fitted, which seems a little more professional to me.

I like the medium version. I think the bottom just above the hip crease is more flattering and has less chance of getting stretched out and sagging in all the wrong places. It's absolutely beautiful - can't wait to see the finished product.

I agree with Cath. I like the short version for those same reasons, unless, of course, it does something unfortunate in your arseal region.

I like the shorter length. You know Ruth, we the Short of the World, cannot pull off the tunic length. Nice photos, btw.

And, I like the medium. The short looks too short to me. Guess you're going to have to decide what YOU like! :)
