Sweater for my daughter
I finished a sweater I've been working on for my oldest daughter. This is a Drops pattern (GarnStudio). It is made from Berroco Peruvia 100% wool. DD is a little bigger/taller than me so I think it will fit her nicely. This is me wearing it though.

This is a close up that shows the pattern in the yoke and across the tops of the sleeves a little and the bone buttons DD got for her sweater.

Very Nice. I like the color. Looks like it would be nice and warm. My DD lives in Maine, I only wish I could knit a sweater for her- maybe one of these days.

stitchabit, how long have you been knitting? If you can make ribbing, and knit in the round I'll bet there are sweaters you could make. A pullover is easy.
