I am so proud of myself. This was my first big project and I didn't think I could do it but I did. I'm hoping it will stretch out a bit but it's otherwise great.

Check out my blog http://amizada.wordpress.com/.

I can't wait to wear it out. WEEEE!

It looks great! The best part will be when someone asks you where you got that great sweater, then you just say "I made it!!" :)

Thanks everyone. The pattern was actually easier than I thought. The seaming kicked my butt though just because it took me a while to get going on each side but once I got it lined up I was on a roll.

I just finished my first sweater not too long ago so I know exactly how you feel! Your sweater is just fantabulous. Great job! :yay:

It felt so surreal when I finished the seaming. I'm wearing it at work today and have gotten a few compliments on it. No one believes I made it lol.

Hi Wends! :waving:

That is one gorgeous sweater! You young knitters just amaze me!
I sure wasn't knitting such fabulous stuff when I was a newbie!

You have a good eye for color IMHO. You selected a wonderful color to display the sweater details, and also for your creamy complexion!

Kudos to you! :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing your sweater with us! :muah:
