My Anya Sweater is Done!
For photos, go to my blog.

The only real reservation I had about this pattern was it's "boxy" shape. I prefer sweaters fitting my shape rather than making me look boxy. Oh well, I'm still learning and I'll make sure to look for more shaped patterns in the future. Was a joy to use the Silkroad Aran Tweed though...gorgeous colour!

Happy Knitting everyone!! :XX:

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! :D

Trish...it wasn't a difficult pattern at all....all knits & purls and increases/decreases. It knit up relatively quickly too!

Hi kitkat...I started knitting in December of 2004 and my first project was a garter stitch scarf. I have just recently started garments...about the summer of last year.

Not too sure about "professional" looking but I'm working on it....I get a wee bit better with each finished garment...and also learn more with each one too.
