FO: My first sweater!!
I finally finished it! My first sweater was a HUGE success!!! And I must add that the KAL was definitely a huge help! *See Mer's gorgeous hourglass sweater!* It fits perfectly and I love the color!! And although I was super nervous about the neck I really like how it turned out!! I think my husband was more nervous about it fitting/looking good than I was! But he loves it too and is extremely excited that it turned out so great!

It's beautiful and you are adorable in it!

You must be so excited!! It looks so wonderful on you. So many first sweaters either fit Shrek or Mickey Mouse. :D Good for you!!
