Not so much.
Every picture I took of this sweater made me want to go back into the house and stay there. Forever. Alternately, I considered purchasing a burqua. None of this has anything to do with the sweater. The sweater is soft, cuddly, warm; it has depth and texture, and it's comfortable. The arms are a little big, and also a little short-- although I like that, since I usually push up my sleeves-- and there are definitely some wonky areas where my inability to count k2p2 ribbing was front and center-- but I love it. And, unflattering or not, I haven't taken it off in several days.
Orion is Devin's cat; he's our old man, at about 10 years, and up until 2010 he was an exclusive desert-kitty. And, while he is one of the furriest cats I have ever met, he does seem to be cold here in the Pacific NW.
I figured he could deal with being cold, what with his copious amounts of fur, and ability to crawl under various blankets during the many hours that we're not home and the space heater isn't on (also, I'd like to point out that we do leave the regular heat set at just above 60 all the time, so it's really not that cold). Devin has remained concerned, however, and awhile back she came home with a skein of Malabrigo Rios and asked me to make Orion a sweater. Normally, I'm pretty stridently anti-pet-sweaters, but I really love Devin, and I want her to be happy, and I wanted to try Malabrigo Rios anyway...
