WooHoo!!

I'm so happy. When I started knitting, back in November, I never imagined that I'd be able to knit a sweater, but I did...i did...I did!

ETA: The sweater is meant for my niece, but my "model" was so gracious to let me take a pic.

Yeah!!! That's great! I did my first one 3 mos after I started knitting, too. In fact I'm wearing it right now! :teehee:

That looks great :muah: I'm working on a ribbed sweater, which will be my first pull over, and with all the switching from K3 to P2 back and forth i keep thinking that maybe i should have done a sweater that looks like yours. It's an awesome first sweater :mrgreen: .

Sorry...didn't realize I put this post in the wrong forum :oops:

Thank you all for the support. I was tempted to quite, turn the sweater into a scarf, but I'm glad I kept going.

Great job! It looks great! What pattern did you use? I made my first sweater after 5 months of knitting. I learned to knit Dec. 05

I bet you're really good now! I'm trying to push myself to do more challenging projects.

Here's the pattern: http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html

It's actually a custom fit, one-piece sweater. I took a sweater class and this is the pattern that the instructor used. I'm sure that you'll be able to follow it easily, but if you need help, just let me know :)

Good for you! That is a good knitting milestone!

It took me a long time before I started a sweater and am impressed with how many of you do this so quickly! :happydance:
