From Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitters Handbook:
I’m really tall, but I love short things--my kids, my car, my husband. Here you’ll learn how to make short rows--a knitting technique that is feared and misunderstood but just wants to be loved! This sweater is all about the curves--making them, hugging them, and loving them! Nothing is as sexy as confidence, and nothing builds confidence like a flattering, well shaped garment with a plunging neckline. So sit your butt down, knit this baby up and exult in your mother-given shape!
