This is my first sweater! The pattern is April, in Nashua Handknits' The North American Designer no. 6. It is a ribbed tunic with eyelet details.

I started this in March, but I had done a lot of swatching first, trying to get the ribbing to look decent. The ribbing on the back is sloppy, but by the time I had gotten to the sleeves it improved. If the pattern didn't call for the sweater to be made according to length, my sweater would be a disaster; I think my gauge changed so much between the back and front that I have a different of some 10-20 rows. Not blocked.

Though you struggled with this piece, it looks great on you!  I think having the back a little longer than the front is kind of nice -- Once you block, you will really enjoy this sweater!  I love working with Jeanee -- what did you think of it?
