View Full Version : My first sweater

Here is a few pics of my first adult size sweater. I used Vanna's Choice in Dusty Purple but I can't remember the number of skiens that I needed. The pattern came from Better Homes and Gardens Knitted Sweaters for Her by Leisure Arts. Pattern name was My First Sweater.

It looks great, and I love the color. "My First Sweater" being your first sweater is pretty cute.

This will be a sweater that you'll love for years! Very classic cut, and everyone looks good in neutral colors! Brown is one of my favs!

I love that sweater! I hope you love wearing it as much as you did knitting it. I keep promising to make myself a cardigan... perhaps after project #697... maybe...

That is a beautiful sweater! I am strongly attracted to basic, classic sweaters. You did a great job on it as well. A great item for your wardrobe.

Thanks for all of the supportive compliments :muah: I really do enjoy wearing it as much as I did knitting it. Very soft, warm and comfortable. The weather here in Houston has been good sweater weather the past month, so I finished it just in time. :teehee:
