Just beautiful. I really love the first one and the diamond patterned sweater. You do great work without patterns. I couldn't knit a sweater with one!!

First... Your mother must be so proud of you. As a knitter herself I'm sure she is thrilled to see you making so many nice things. She taught you over the phone? You must both be very talented to accomplish that.

Good job with your designs. Most of us learn to work from patterns but I think it is very special to start off as you have and just be able to make things. I sure wouldn't call you a newbie if you can do these on your own.

You're doing great, keep going.

Hi... just saw these sweaters and I love them.
The beautiful first sweater is my favourite... just love the colour, the design... everything... and it looks so comfy too.
Love the others a well... but this one stopped my eye...
Beautiful.

Olha, your sweaters are lovely, darling too.
You do great work.
Can you state how to make the stitch pattern shown in the off white sweater? It looks similar to a K1, P1, but it isn't, is it?
Very nice all around.

Thanks. The pattern stitch is very simple (multiple of three) -- sl1, yo, k2tog. It will start showing on row 5-6, so stick to it until you see the lacy kind of pattern.

Thanks for the stitch pattern.
Now I need something to practice it on.
It should work well for a cap don't you think?

I don't know how it will work in a round, I kind of suspect it won't because 'on the way back' you grab the yo and a slipped stitch to make k2tog. I would suggest a scarf. I have one and it looks nice.
