Hello everyone!  I've finally knitted my first sweater.  I'm usually a crocheter, but after seeing all the knit sweaters my sister makes, I decided to give it a try.

Pattern:  Salvia from Knitter's Spring 2007
Yarn:  Mission Falls 1824 Cotton
Needle Size:  4.5 mm (US 7) straights and DPNs (the need for DPNs was an unexpected surprise!)

I'll show the pics and then give a breakdown of all the new things I learned:








New things I learned:
-How to use DPNs.  The sleeves started on straights for the split cuffs, then switched to DPNs and then back to straights.  It was a surprise, I thought you only needed the DPNs for I-cord!
-I-cord and attached I-cord
-Lace knitting
-Seaming
-Picking up stitches
-3rd sleeve syndrome:  due to a minor error in placing a stitch marker, the cuff was slightly off for one sleeve.  So I ended up making it twice.

I love how knitted sweaters drape in comparison to crochet.  I'm addicted now, I think!

Thanks for any comments.
