"Super Simple" (We'll See) Wrap Jacket KAL
I'm attempting my first article of "real" clothing. Found this pattern that is supposedly "easy" and good for beginning knitters, which is what I am. I'm JUST starting this (I've cast on and knitted first row).

Anyone want to share the experience of the frustrations and joys of knitting thier first sweater (or rather wrap jacket) along with me?

The FREE pattern can be found at the following link.

For this, I'm using some different supplies (and PRAYING it works). For the yarn, I'm using Lion Brand Pound of Love in Denim (#110) cause the idea is that I'm making this for my mom and she loves blue. This is a worsted weight baby yarn. Also, to get the gauge I'm using US 8 needles. (At least the gauge worked on my sample. I'm scared to death that the end product might not fit just cause I've never made anything that had to "fit" before).

Anyway, look forward to hopefully knitting along with some of you!
