Thanks! Re: camera face.... My camera is even harder I had to hold up the strap! It's not a little "monkey camera" although it's not huge. :roflhard:

Great job on the sweater! I hope that if I ever attempt to make a sweater it would turn out that great the first time! :cheering:

First, you say???
VERY NICE!

I'm gonna have to try that approach to picture taking.
I think it might be just the look best for me. :roflhard:

I love that sweater. It's gorgeous. Lovely color, and it looks so soft and comfortable. You did an excellent job, because it looks like a perfect fit. I haven't finished my first sweater yet, because I'm nervous about the seaming. But, you've inspired me to press on.

Jan ~ it's terrific. Way to go. I just finished my first sweater tonight...but am nervous about the seaming as well. The sweater you knit is on my list of things to do.

Thanks everyone! :heart:

Answers to all the questions and more info:

Pattern is from Knitting Pure and Simple #9724 (http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/). I bought mine locally, but they have them elsewhere online as well.

The yarn is Bernat's Denim Style (http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=denimstyle&PHPSESSID=0518680ad8c52b43a08078d795f41563) in stonewash. I bought it at Joanns on sale. The whole thing cost me about $30, but I do have a couple skeins left over.

The picture is bad, but it's a top down raglan done on circs with no seams. I made the size small and it's very soft and comfy!

As for those two skeins, can we expect to see a matching hat soon? Or some thick, warm socks?

Your sweater looks very nice and comfy! And I love your quote about the cat hair. My cat insists on sitting in my lap while I knit. But, since that is not do-able for me, we have come to an understandng where he sits half on my lap and half on the arm of the chair. Luckily he does not play with the yarn.

Thanks! LOL my cat sits by me and meows if I don't let her on my lap so I accomodate her for a few minutes and then she usually heads off on her own. My cat doesn't touch my yarn either unless something is dangling then it's just too much and she can't help herself. :roflhard:
