I started this in September, but just finished it last night.  It's a modified version of a cropped cardigan from knit 1. 

I'd love to know what you think - constructive criticism is definitely welcomed.

(woah, all of a sudden I'm feeling super self conscious about posting pics. Embarrassed  Well, here goes nothing.)

Thanks everyone!  I really appreciate all the compliments.  You've made me feel a lot more confident about it.  Thanks! Smiley

Don't be scared, little Kellybean Cheesy.  It's not really hard, just time consuming.

I know!  I'm kinda sad that I didn't get it finished until now.  It feels like summer time.  Last year it was still cold at this time of year.  Stupid global warming  Angry.  I'm going to have to start making tank tops.

First ever?  Wow!  It looks amazing.  I'm so intimidated to try a sweater - I've never spent more than a month on a project before.  Knit1 is such a rad magazine.

I congratulate you! This turned out waaaay better than my first sweater did... Imagine it to be a lot more lumpy with a gross turtleneck...
