View Full Version : My FIRST sweater!

This is my first ever sweater. The colors look horrible on the picture, but they are actually a beautiful turquoise, bluish gray and blue. I am kind of proud that I stepped a little bit out of my box to knit this sweater. I made a couple changes because it called for ribbon ties and rosettes and I wanted buttons so I made button loops (not brave enough for buttonholes without directions quite yet) It proves to me that I can do something besides scarves and blankets and hats that are easy. This sweater was an easy project because it is knit in one piece, but I had a couple issues, one of which was incorrect directions with regards to the sleeve cuff's border. I would have had to rip out most of the sweater to put the border on the sleeve cuffs because of it and it looked fine without it so I just ignored the stupid mistake and finished the sweater off. Hopefully I will get better with seams etc as I go along, but I am sure my new grandbaby is not going to complain next winter when he needs a sweater and hat. I have a blanket to match that I am halfway through with too.

I think you did great and it is so pretty. I love the star on top of the hat too.

How cute! The star buttons are perfect, since that colorway reminds me of moonlight.

Wow, that's really nice. Congratulations on your first sweater!

I'm looking forward to being able to say that: "my first sweater". I'm still on my first scarf. :oops:

That's cute! I like the little star button on the top of the hat. It adds a very nice touch to it. :thumbsup:

That is so pretty. I'm totally jealous. I'm hard at work on my first sweater. I'm not sure if I'm dying for it to be done or afraid to finish it :oops:. Your grandbaby will be adorable in it.
