Ok, it's the fourth one I've started but it is the first one that i have finished (so far). :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

It is KP Shine worsted in Terra Cotta and it is very snuggly soft. The pattern is from Knitting Pure and Simple.

Hey, I have read that you can not only machine wash but also tumble dry garments made of KP Shine. Is that really true? I mean, have any of you done it? I am afraid to be the first one. Maybe I'll just lay it flat to dry...

Wow! I can't believe that's your first sweater...It looks amazing! :notworthy:

Are the patterns free on knitting pure and simple, or do you have to buy them?

You have to buy them. I bought mine at my lys for about 5 dollars.
I like them because all the patterns are very simple, knit in the round, no seaming later! And the instructions are very clear.

Great fit. Those other sweaters you started must have been good practice, because this one looks beautiful. I love the color.

I couldn't agree more with everyone else's comments! What a great looking sweater and I think you did such a fantastic job on the fit (which is to me the hardest part!). Bravo to you! :notworthy:

Your sweater looks great!. I knitted a skirt for my daughter with KP shine, and yes you can safely wash and dry it. I washed it in cold water and dried it with a low setting - but not completely dry :teehee: . Held up beautifully and I think it was softer after the wash.

Forget my first sweater as that's long gone, I hope my next sweater looks as good as that one. Congratulations!
