Thank you all for the kind comments.
I'm really quite pleased with myself and now I can't wait to make make more cardigans.
Jan-The pattern is Cardigan to Love
. I can't imagine having made a sweater within 3 months of knitting....but then it did take me about 10 years to finally master the purl stitch.
Internette-It was intimidating looking at the instructions when I was first reading them. I think I may have physched myself out a bit. But once I got to actually knitting it, it all made a lot more sense to me.
Antares-Yes I believe it does make it look a bit swingy, which is one of the things that I love about it!!
