1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    What is the proper length of a cardigan or button/zip front sweater? I bring this up because of Gerry's last post. That outfit is probably something I would wear to work sans jacket. However, I notice a lot of my cardigans or zip front sweaters tend to be longer in length. Sizing down would appear to be shrunken in fit I believe. Do certain makers intentionally design their cardigans shorter in the body?

    Thanks for all the very kind words. High praise indeed!

    I didn't have it altered at all. I would consider it more like a shirt-jacket. A lot of the pictures I've seen where it's worn like a sportscoat look not quite right to me - a couple of the pictures with ties in this post look a little like lab coats to me.

    When I looked at the measurements for my usual size, they just seemed way too big around the chest and I considered sizing down. All the advice was to go TTS so I did and it was the right choice.
