I finally finished it! My first sweater was a HUGE success!!! :cheering: And I must add that the KAL was definitely a huge help! *See Mer's gorgeous hourglass sweater!* It fits perfectly and I love the color!! And although I was super nervous about the neck I really like how it turned out!! I think my husband was more nervous about it fitting/looking good than I was! But he loves it too and is extremely excited that it turned out so great! :happydance:

It looks perfect to me!

Thank you guys sooooo much!! I'm at work right now, and of course I'm wearing it, because I :heart: IT!!! And they've all seen me working on it, so I had to show it off! I used Andean Silk from Knit Picks. The pattern called for Noro Cash Iroha, but I just couldn't see spending $110 on my first sweater! And I'm so glad I went with this yarn!! :cheering: It's so soft, and orange is my fave color, and this is definitely orange!! :thumbsup:

Brilliant job! it fits you perfectly, you should be so proud. My first (and only so far) sweater (cardigan really) turned out so big it's kinda embassing (i still wear it tho :blush: )
