Just wanted to share my FO. I saw this sweater done by aprilbetty on this site and thought to myself, I can do this. Thanks for guideance from aprilbetty I finally finished it.

I hadn't worked much with charts and never worked with short rows, and hadn't really block anything. I know that there are a few mistakes, but all in all I am please with it. I used an acrylic yarn and I know that it does really block well, but it at least gave me the concept of blocking.

It is for my granddaughter. Everytime she would be over she would ask is it done yet. Last time she was over she told me that she couldn't wait forever. She is 4.

Pug,
The sweater is beautiful! You did such a good job on it, and your dgd will love it! I am planning to do a few more of them over the next few years. (For my three dgd's!) Have you seen the adult-sized pattern with the similar cables? I may knit one of those for one of my dd's.

Thanks so much for posting the picture!

I really enjoyed working on this. With your help about using the chart instead of the written directions really made it much easier. I saw the adult version and it will be on my list on things I would like to do. Thanks again for all your help.

You're welcome. I was so happy that somebody else was knitting the sweater. I know your dgd will really enjoy wearing it.

"Pretty in Pink", VERY cute.

BTW, they aren't mistakes, they're personalizations!
