first sweater... Updated
Ok, here it is my first sweater after lets see... like three months... ufff, it took forever, not the knitting but the seemig!! I hate that!!! Anyway, here is my proud boyfriend with his finished sweater that he wont be able to wear until next winter!! Its soo hot, and spring has arrive.
Ill post the specifications of the pattern and yarn tomorrow, i forgot!!! hehehe!

Thank youll for helping me finish, without your help it would never turn out this way

ok, heres the link for the pattern:

http://straw.com/cpy/patterns/sequoia-mens-rib.html

and the yarn i used was Katia "Tundra" I had to make some changes since my BF wanted that yarn with that pattern.

What a terrific looking sweater! I think you did a great job.

Your boyfriend has something to look forward to wearing this winter. (at least he won't outgrow it- it took me almost six months to complete a baby sweater and I feared the baby would outgrow it before I could complete it and give it to her!)

Looks great! I still have to seam up my first sweater as well. It is such a PAIN, so I know how you feel.
