View Full Version : My first project

11-23-2007, 06:31 PM
So, I finally finished my daughter's sweater. It is not anywhere near perfect, but I like it because I made it for my little girl. Most importantly, I finished it before she got too big for it! :woot:
Thank you to everyone who helped me on this forum. I am glad you are here. I am about to start another project so I am sure I will be posting more questions.

How did you get the neck to turn out so nice? I've made two of those (first one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/54745504@N00/1625519037/) made last spring w/short sleeves for a summer baby, second one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/54745504@N00/2056826784/) started Friday, finished last night!) and the neck is wonky on both :( I was following the pattern on the skein of yarn, were you following that one or the one on the Caron website? Maybe that is my problem...

I really want to be able to learn the embroidery for that pattern. I got some suggestions here on KH for websites to get me started, but I don't feel confident enough to go for it yet.
