FO: I can't believe I did it!
This is my first time posting a FO. Until now, I didn't think I had anything worthy to post.

Now, that doesn't mean I'm not proud of every single thing I've kint, but this one is SO special to me!

It's my first time doing any kind of colorwork, and my first attempt was a huge mess! I tried to strand all the colors along and...well, you can imagine what the inside of the sweater looked like!
But I didn't give up and I came here to ask for help! And help, I got!

Here it is, my Engine #9 sweater!
