Wow - you really did an awsome job! You should be really proud of yourself for all of those "firsts".

yes it really feels great to promise yourself that you'll try something different and then really go thru with it. i had fun - except learning how to graft the underarms - that wasn't so fun. lol

That looks beautiful. I think you must have natural knitting talent to do so well on your first sweater.
