I decided for my very first sweater I was going to knit a baby sweater for a brand new niece/nephew (we don't know which yet!).  I used this pattern: http://www.canadianliving.com/crafts/knitting/knit_a_baby_baseball_tee_with_mittens.php  At first, knitting the sweater was very quick and easy.  However, I still had to sew the thing up!  I took longer to seam than it did to stinkin' knit the thing!  Ugh!  Anyway, I learned a lot of great stuff.  I learned how to have a nice chained edge on the sides of the knitting pieces from here: http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2007/02/chain-selvedge-aka-slipped-selvedge.html  I also learned how to do a mattress seam from here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips
And finally, I learned how to do an improved SSK from here:http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/decreases

Well, without further ado, here is my very first sweater:

Comments?  Suggestions for my next sweater?
