Ani... I'd love to see your "first" sweater.  I'm getting so scared about how mine is going to turn out, everyone freaks out over the sleeves.  Should I be that nervous?  I've currently got about 13" of the back under my belt but that't it.  It looks good so far... Undecided

I'll get a picture of my progress up soon.

Tere... I love the color of your sweater...  What pattern and yarn are you using?  Looks great!

PEACE

I'm about 10" into Tempting right now...I'm getting nervous as I approach the yoke, but it's coming along pretty nicely so far.

Thanks guys, for the support Smiley
J Rabette, I'm using the Purple Haze pattern from Knit Wit but modified a bit. I made the width smaller and changed the ribbed borders so that they are purled. so far the pattern is really straight forward. I am worried about the seaming though..yikes.
Irish, the yarn is Briggs n Little and I believe its spun locally (New Brunswick). I got it for super cheap at the store at my university (I'm an art student). The only thing is, its quite scratchy, so I'm going to do some research on softening wool.
Keep up the great work everyone!

This is my first post and my first sweater! i've been knitting for about a year and a half and have made dozens of hats and scarves, and a few bags but I feel like this is my first real project because i'm following a pattern. I got it from a great book called The Yarn Girls guide to Simple Knits, by Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs. It's all stockinette and minimal shaping. Is anyone familiar with this book? i don't think i've seen anything from it in this forum..

I just got this book in the mail this week. It is great, I plan to make a few things from it after I see how I do on this sweater. I like simple looks so this book is great, especially for the guy sweaters. I decided to get it after seeing it at an SnB, the girl next to me was knitting a sweater from it at the time.

 Wink As soon as I get paid again I'll try this.  I've been wanting that S & B cardigan for some time. I've made tha Hot head hat, some scarves, and arm warmers so I guess it's time to venture forth into new territory. I'll let you all know when I hit the yarn store!

I finished the body but now I'm a little stuck. I have to do the sleeves on dpns, but I don't really understand how to knit on them without moving them to the next needle. I'm going to have to look up some online tutorials and figure it out.

Once you have your sts divided evenly, use your fourth (or fifth) needle to knit on the needle to your left. When that needle becomes free, use it to knit on the next needle to the left. But yeah, a tutorial would probbly help more Smiley
Good luck, its actually kind of fun once you get going.
