I found a cashmere mink blend on ebay (just put those two words in the search box, you'll find Craig!) and this may be THE spoil myself project with this yarn. Can't wait!

I know one thing, If i make that I need to reconfigure that whole top=== one of the reasons I find myself makin more for others...

i wanted to make the cute camisoles and stuff like that but the sizes are so god awful small... and even if you make the largest,, they usually look like the tiny triangles on that top, like the  bikini tops LOL

you need more than big yarn and large needles, its more like needing to fiddle with the pattern in the long run.

Why is this displayed on a young male dress form?

Would love to see this in a larger size for us BBW. Anybody got any suggestions what size needle would be needed to make it  a few sizes larger.
