"A sweater like a tree?"
 
   Now that I have a description of some clothes which stand out for Kaitlyn, I want to draw that. Unfortunantly, I have absolutely no idea what that sweater is supposed to look like...

If you could give me an alternate description of the sweater, then the Giant Robo! style pic I do next (no idea as to WHEN) will be full-body, as opposed to only face.

How would you like your description? I can try to do ascii art, but the text formatting here would probably screw that up.

Unless you surrounded it with [pre] and [/pre] tags, although then people with poorly-configured browsers will complain about the font size again.

   Terms which don't refer to heraldic symbols might be nice, me not being a herald. A physical desription (oh, see, the lines go vertically here, and such-and-such) is fine.

I'll try to curb my poetic tendencies. :)

Basically, if the sweater is a big T (with the sleeves being the arms of the T) it goes like this from left to right:

Sleeve with chevrons ( linked chevrons look like this: /\/\/\/\/\ )
Shoulder with a bit of tree branch curling over it
Verticle cable
Center of sweater with main trunk of tree and most of the branches
Verticle cable
Shoulder with a bit of tree branch curling over it
Sleeve with chevrons

Wonderful... down the sleeve, or around it?

>Shoulder with a bit of tree branch curling over it

Actual picture of tree? I thought it was a vague impression of a tree...

>Verticle cable

Oro? English being my first language, I've forgotten enough that this makes no sense (nor, for that matter, does the sentence I just wrote).

Verticle I understand. Cable? Stripes?

>Center of sweater with main trunk of tree and most of the branches

Again, I thought it was a kind of representation of a tree, not an actual tree?

Around it.

It is - they didn't use a different color of yarn, they did it with the types of knitted stitches possible, to make it sort of a depression-shadow tree. But the suggestion of branches goes to the shoulders.

>>Verticle cable

It looks like a piece of rope that is embedded in the sweater going from Kate's shoulder to the bottom of the sweater.

>Verticle I understand. Cable? Stripes?

Like the type of rope (called a cable) used on ships.

>>Center of sweater with main trunk of tree and most of the branches
>

That's what I said. Whether that's what it meant to you is entirely different. I'm quite sure what my mental picture of this looks like - the wonderful and catastrophic thing about words is they mean different things to different people.

   Thanks for the help. Unless Gryphon says it's not quite right, I'll run with this description... eventually.

Hey, Anne invented that garment in the first place; why do you think she's credited as Kate's couturier? :)

(You've never seen a cable-knit sweater? Poke around on the web, you'll probably find something... )

   Mmm, okay, I'll try that, then.

No, I have never noticed a cable-knit sweater. That doesn't mean I haven't seen one, though - just that I am incredibly unobservative. It's been proven scientifically.

See, if he were observant, he would have realized that there is no such word as unobservative...

Example of a cable-knit sweater

For the curious, they are called fisherman's sweaters because the old sailors
each had a distinctive style of knitting for each family. Often times when
someone got washed overboard and drowned, the fish would mangle the flesh
beyond recognation.. The sweater was used to identify the body when it washed
up on shore.

...wow, you learn something new, and occasionally morbid, every day.

I'll never be able to look at a fisherman's sweater the same way again.

Of course, I'll probably never *buy* a fisherman's sweater again until and unless I move back to the Northeast.
