My, isn't this pretty.




Where to begin, where to begin... How about with the color. Cascade calls it "lime green". I guess by that they mean the limes that have been sitting around on your counter for the last two or so months and have started to rot right there before your very eyes. Or maybe "lime green" is code for pea soup.

According to the specs, that sweater is 30.5 inches around at the waist. It's fairly fitted, so she's probably sporting a 28 inch waist. A 28 inch waist is pretty thin. So somebody please explain to me how this sweater could possibly be attractive on a regular sized person when the model looks like she just came off a Krispy Kreme binge? And just in case you hadn't noticed the pooch, let's add ribbing that points to it! Hooray!
