I finished my first sweater!
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!!"
