Here's my first sweater, a pale turquoise version of Purple Haze from Knit Wit. I made a few adjustments (more details and thoughts about the pattern can be found on my blog), and added the buttons because I thought it had a retro feel. I had some issues with the seaming (ugly) but blocking made things a bit less noticeable.

You can sort of see the collar here. It goes around the back of the neck.

Thanks for looking, guys Smiley

Tere! I love it!  Grin

The light turquoise really sets off all the beautiful garter edging, and the buttons are perfect!

I really love how it foofs out at the bottom hem-- really cute. And I like the color on you! I think you made an awesome choice color-wise.

Wow!  What an accomplishment for a first sweater!!  Great choice of buttons, too.  I'd be wearing it every single day if I'd made it.
