This is the sweater I finished recently. I got the pattern here: http://www.bluealvarez.com/bluealva/patterns/birthday.html.

I used KnitPicks Sierra in Cranberry and Mist.

I haven't blocked it yet, but I think it looks pretty good. Yes folks, I may actually wear this one out of the house! ;)

I love that sweater!!! You picked great colors. Everybody is right, it looks better than the one on the pattern. I think I'm going to knit that for myself.

I already posted how much I love your sweater that I am ordering knitpicks tonight. Have you done a lot of sweaters? I haven't yet and wondering if it was hard to do. What size did you knit? You look about my size.

Sorry for all the questions. :?? I was looking at the pattern and it didn't say what size needle to use. What size needles did you use, Amber?

Cindy :D

Cindy,
I haven't done a lot of sweaters. This was my third sweater attempt and my first success. What I like about this pattern is that it's knit in the round, from the neck down, so there is no seaming (yay!). I'd say, the only challenging part was doing the sleeves on dpns -- but that's only because I'm still kind of a dpn novice.

I knit the size small. Oh, and as Jan mentioned, the needle size is 11. Let me know if you decide to knit one. I'd be happy to answer any more questions, and I'd love to see it when it's finished! :D

I saw that it was size 11 needle right after I posted the question. Thanks for the info Amber. I am ordering yarn tonight. If I have any questions, I definately will ask you. Thanks for the offer.
