EEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!!!
Wow that's awful! The red one is the worst, the the purple sweater with the big asymmetric roped cables up and across the breasts is very close second!

I think second place goes to the sleeveless turtleneck that makes her look like she's wearing a chain halter. Not that I have anything against chain halters, but I just think they should be made out of chains...

Mmmm....... Yes. I think you're right.

I've been looking at these today:

(If the link doesn't work properly,the 5-ply kits on bobbins.co.uk)

I know that they're beyond my skill/enthusiasm level, but I *really* want to have a go at one of them.

Ooh, I like this one. (I think I am being partly influenced by my reaction to the cute furry guy wearing it.)

Go for it!

A cable-knit jumpsuit?! Egad.

If you click the "Inside pages" link, it turns out to be a belted dress, but I thought it was a jumpsuit too at first.

The aliens are taking over my body
The magazine cover picture (the head-to-foot red catsuit thing) looks like some sort of alien-transformation effect you might see on the X-Files. :)

But when I clicked on that picture, the 4 sweaters featured in the popup actually looked nice to me. Not saying I'd wear them, especially, but they didn't look horrifying to me.

Hey, you're listening to For the Roses! Cool! How do you like it?

alien-transformation effect

Exactly!

The four sweaters on the first page of the popup aren't bad.

I like Joni Mitchell a lot.

How to take lithe women and make them look lumpy -- in a bad, malignant way -- in one easy step!

I particularly like how, on the last of the inside pages, they've cleverly placed the model's entire forearm across what I believe to be a cabled waist on that orange thing.

So they did. I kept looking at that going "where are the cables?"
