My first project
So, I finally finished my daughter's sweater. It is not anywhere near perfect, but I like it because I made it for my little girl. Most importantly, I finished it before she got too big for it!
Thank you to everyone who helped me on this forum. I am glad you are here. I am about to start another project so I am sure I will be posting more questions.

That's adorable!

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

That's a very sweet sweater, Flora. I'm sure she'll love it and look adorable.

How did you get the neck to turn out so nice? I've made two of those (first one made last spring w/short sleeves for a summer baby, second one started Friday, finished last night!) and the neck is wonky on both :( I was following the pattern on the skein of yarn, were you following that one or the one on the Caron website? Maybe that is my problem...

I really want to be able to learn the embroidery for that pattern. I got some suggestions here on KH for websites to get me started, but I don't feel confident enough to go for it yet.
