Hello! first post! (although I had an account here as a pre-teen)

I finally finished this sweater after being off sick from work for a while. The yarn is a chunky merino / acrylic blend knitted on 6mm needles. These photos are pre-blocking -- it's laid out to dry at the moment so the sleeves should look a little less trumpet like . I went for some more muted colours for the "cigarette" so that it looks like a bit of an abstract ish 70s pattern as well. I am really happy with this piece but simultaneously I've learned a lot what NOT to do!

And a close up on that sleeve! should have been in stockinette like the body but i have a poor attention span so forgot and just did it in garter stitch. never mind!

I love the color blocking, and the garter stitch sleeve adds good textural interest.  Well done!
