so i just retaught myself how to crochet in december, and ended up with this big box of yarn from my grandma...so i made a sweater!!(ish)
i used like two and a half balls of yarn and made it up as i went along, and i'm afraid to try again because i feel like i was mostly just lucky that it ended up looking like an article of clothing...but anyway, here it is!





i just noticed that the front part is all curled in front, it doesn't always look like that.
what do you guys think? i'm ridiculously proud of myself for actually finishing something but i'm not sure if that means it's wearable in public

thanks for looking!

Is this your first wearable item???  It looks so good!  I think you should wear it everywhere.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Really cute. I love cropped style. The shape of the neckline worked out nicely, very flattering.

Great job! That would look really cool over a nice button-up shirt.
