This sweater was originally called "Silver Belle," from the 25th anniversary issue of Vogue Knitting where it was one of a celebratory feature of designs in silver/gray. The designer's yarn is still available. I wound up finding a discontinued color and buying it because I wasn't getting gauge in yarns of the same weight. I never did get the right gauge according to the directions, so I didn't actually expect I'd get a sweater that would fit me.
It's made of 17 balls of yarn - at 50g each - that's nearly two pounds of yarn! The textures make for a bulky sort of fabric and I really didn't expect I'd enjoy wearing it, thinking it would be unflattering.
But it's not a bad fit.
