I am pleased as punch that I finished my first sweater. It fits perfectly. I do have some mistakes in it and I have a few stitches that are a little bigger than the ones around them, but overall I am beaming.
I used Caron Simply Soft in country peach and the pattern is St. James
Here are pics:
Now for the bigger stitches. Do you see the stitches that look a little bigger than the ones around them? Do you think that problem will go away the longer I knit? They are really obvious to me when I look in the mirror at the sweater. I probably won't wear it out in public. I am going to knit another one in chocolate brown. I have only been at it 6 mos.
