FO: I finished my first sweater!!
WooHoo!!

I'm so happy. When I started knitting, back in November, I never imagined that I'd be able to knit a sweater, but I did...i did...I did!

ETA: The sweater is meant for my niece, but my "model" was so gracious to let me take a pic.

That looks great I'm working on a ribbed sweater, which will be my first pull over, and with all the switching from K3 to P2 back and forth i keep thinking that maybe i should have done a sweater that looks like yours. It's an awesome first sweater .

Sorry...didn't realize I put this post in the wrong forum

Thank you all for the support. I was tempted to quite, turn the sweater into a scarf, but I'm glad I kept going.

I bet you're really good now! I'm trying to push myself to do more challenging projects.

Here's the pattern: http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html

It's actually a custom fit, one-piece sweater. I took a sweater class and this is the pattern that the instructor used. I'm sure that you'll be able to follow it easily, but if you need help, just let me know

Good for you! That is a good knitting milestone!

It took me a long time before I started a sweater and am impressed with how many of you do this so quickly!
