I am so excited. It is my 1st garment, my 1st project in the round and only my 4th FO.

The yarn is Elann Sonata and the color is Pecan. I made the smallest size and used 5 balls.

That looks great. Was it a fast knit?

Thanks everybody.

It id a really good fit which is all probably beginner's luck since i didn't swatch (i know, i know.... *slap on the hand*).

It took me a little over a month to finish but then i didn't not knit everyday (if i had, it would have gone so much faster, but i am easily distracted).

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That came out so pretty. I wasn't initially into the pattern, but the more I'm seeing people knit it, the more I like it - yours is a great example of that. Gorgeous.

It turned out real pretty. I really like the colour combo and, it seems as though it fits you real well. Give yourself a big pat on the back, for a job done well.  Grin
I was curious, what pattern you used? This looks as though it might be a fairly easy knit and with me being a fairly newbie, that's why I'm curious about the pattern.
Was there any shaping to it?
