Here is my first. Thankfully, the picture quality is horrid, so the sweater looks pretty!
I made it about 4 yrs ago. It is Lion Brand Microspun, so it is SOOO soft, but of course it made those twisty ridges as that kind of yarn is wont to do. I ran my ends under some rows to finish it, so of course they all stick out on the right side.
But I love the color and it really was pretty impressive for a first project, if I say so myself. It even has eyelet around the waist and cuffs. And my big confession is that she never wore it! Her head was/is really big and the hood never fit, so I never let her wear it 'cause she would cry if she couldn't put the hood up. (She gets her stubborn streak from her father.
