Here is my first ever sweater.  I think it turned out O.K.  If I ever make it again, I will make it a bit longer.  It fits a bit funny because I am 5 1/2 months pregnant...so excuse where the bottom pulls a bit and the prego pants.  I think it will fit wonderfully next fall.  The second photo shows the colors more accurately.

Beautiful! And your first sweater?!? I'm so jealous... Cheesy Was the pattern difficult? I've always chickened out on this one. And you make a cute pregnant lady.  Smiley
On a different topic, have you seen the tutorial for making maternity pants? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28377.0 In case you need it. Smiley

The pattern was easy to follow.  You basically just knit a bunch of simple sections them sew them together.  There is a lot of seaming in the end, which gets annoying.  I knit the sleeves in the round to cut down on some seaming.  That is a great post on the maternity pants, thanks for sharing!

I'm about to make this, as a first sweater, and I'm glad you are so pleased with yours, and it came out looking good! It's such a wonderful pattern.

You know me! I'm that musical loving, Wicked obsessed, knitting, aspiring crafter girl with that weird user name!
