The orange looks great on you! Orange is a bit too bright for me to wear. Green is a better color for me to wear though

What pattern did you use?

Thanks.
You know, pretty much all I wear is orange or brown. I guess I'm going to the right school. :P
Jenelle, it's "London Calling" from Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation, but without the colorwork.

Love the hat and I see nothing wrong with the sweater! I know sometimes things dont turn out how we planned but most of them will have a use anyway.

I think both the sweater and color are too cute I love, love your hat, too! Where did you get the hat pattern? I am a bit of a hat freak
You should be proud of your 1st sweater! We often find flaws in our work that others never see
EDIT I found the pattern...it's Marnies' Nautilus hat

Cate, the sweater looks great!! I like it. My first sweater is ugly- I look at it sometimes and laugh. I still wear it, though- and it was a learning experience, for sure! :D

It's a love sweater, and YOU MADE IT. Be proud, some of us (i.e. me) can't get past scarves, teddies (the cuddly kind, not other), hats and wrist warmers. My new years resolution.

PS LOVE the color.

I love both projects! I really like the sweater too! I know that some projects don't come out the way you imagine it in your head, (I have froged so many!). But hey you finished it!

Besides, the sweater would look cute with a slightly longer, ribbed,white cotton shirt or tank underneath, just peeking out the bottom and a pair of jeans! Totally cute!

I'm not the fashion police or anything! I would love that sweater in my closet and that's just how I would wear it!
