Here is my first sweater and first successful attempt at following a pattern! I'm really happy with it. It's Amy Swenson's Emerald
in Misti Alpaca Chunky in Copper Melange. It's so soft. It's a bit droopy and heavy for the pattern but I love it anyway! I especially love the cabling between the raglan decreases.

And here's the button. I couldn't find one big enough so I bought a wooden spoon and made my own.
