My first sweater!
I am not real thrilled with how the neck turned out, it kinda gapes at the edges. And I had to redo it at least 5 times to get it where it is now. I don't want to do it again! but my son is thrilled and that is all that matters.

It looks very nice and you did a great job! Believe me, it is tough to do sweaters as I have found out! You get better with each one you do! Oh and what a hot model you used!

I think you did a fabulous job! It's really cute! So is your son!

BTW sometimes washing will help things even up and straighten out.

I think it looks really good! The colors are great. And even if the neck is a little wide - although it looks fine in the picture - that's better than being too tight!
