FO - Ugly Sweater
I really do love the orange, though! Some of the little "hairs" in the mohair are the same color as my hair. :D
My seaming leaves something to be desired and the neckline is ugly ugly ugly...But my first sweater is complete. As a bonus, here's the nautilus hat I finished yesterday (you can better see the color of the sweater in that picture).

It doesn't look ugly! And it fits you very well. But if you don't like it it's ok--1st sweaters are always a learning experience. Love the hat, too!

Thanks, Mer.

I forgot to mention, the pattern is London Calling from S'n'B Nation. And considering how "little" time it took me to knit, it took forever to finish! It took me all but the last fifteen minutes of Supertroopers to seam the thing!

The sweater is cute! It looks good on you! And so does that cute little hat! I like how the holes spiral.

haha super troopers...you mightve been too busy laughing to seam the sweater.

Thanks, everyone.

Kelly, every time I buy an orange top (which is actually pretty often ), everyone tells me, "Oh, I can't wear orange!" Yes, you CAN! It's just a color! :D

Oh I LOVE orange! Especially corals and burnt oranges! They look good on ME, too! (If I must say so myself!)

I can't wear orange, but I think it's a cute sweater! Like the hat, too!
