View Full Version : FO: The first sweater

08-12-2007, 12:10 PM
No one told me my very first project couldn't be a sweater...

I used cheap-o Red Heart chunky yarn (that's pretty scratchy compared to everything I tried afterwards).

Here's the pattern: I used one strand since it was so chunky. http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kim-easy.html?noImages=0


Current rule: Only one project at the time and no new yarn until the stash is gone.

:muah:Great job! There is no reason your first project can't be a sweater if that's what you want to do! I do love the color!

Cute sweater! You can wear it with jeans OR a skirt. Or with pajamas, which is what I'd probably do on winter weekends while knitting and watching football.

It looks awesome and I bet you learned a whole lot knitting a sweater for your first project!

:psst: Good luck with the "no new yarn" and "one project at a time" rule.. :shifty: :teehee:
