First sweater fini!
Hey everyone. I just wanted to share my first ever sweater! It is a cable front turtle neck, a pattern I picked up at LYS by Tahki yarns. I knit it in Cascade Eco+, a nice yarn at a great price. It only took about 1 3/4 skeins of yarn to knit. I think if I used this yarn again it would be on smaller needles. The lable reads it as a bulky yarn, and although I got gauge with my blocked swatch, and my sizing came out fine, the stitches are a little stretched, kwim? I had amazingly little trouble with the seaming, I was majorly worried about the set in sleeve, which didn't end up giving me any trouble at all. Overall I am very happy, and hooked on sweaters!

you can see the cable best in this one

This is the true color (sorry for the goofy me model, lol)
Thanks for looking!
