Hey everyone. I just wanted to share my first ever sweater! It is a cable front turtle neck, a pattern I picked up at LYS by Tahki yarns. I knit it in Cascade Eco+, a nice yarn at a great price. It only took about 1 3/4 skeins of yarn to knit. I think if I used this yarn again it would be on smaller needles. The lable reads it as a bulky yarn, and although I got gauge with my blocked swatch, and my sizing came out fine, the stitches are a little stretched, kwim? I had amazingly little trouble with the seaming, I was majorly worried about the set in sleeve, which didn't end up giving me any trouble at all. Overall I am very happy, and hooked on sweaters!:inlove:

You did a great job! What a first sweater :yay: :yay: The stitches might be stretched because the yarn is bulky and heavy, so it pulls itself down...
