Oh my gosh, it's finally DONE!!!!

Here she is, my long in progress Little Tikes pullover sweater (pattern found online, from an old IK). I think it was about the third project I CO, maybe back in Feb, and I just finished it about a week ago. It's sized generously and I knit it to a size 4, expecting it to take a while to complete. So it's still a bit big on Sylvia and the sleeves are a little short on Becca. But it came out the correct size. Anyway, it's sooooo imperfect, but it's my very first sweater. What an amazing feeling, putting a sweater you made by yourself on your own child!

Good Job Amber!! It is beautiful, I love it for the colors and it is a nice casual sporty sorta look.
It does feel good to put a FO on your first was for my third grandchild to wear to my son's wedding two years ago.

It looks fabulous! What kind of yarn did you use?

Your daughter is so cute!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
