I'm so impressed!  I just started knitting, and I love that your first piece turned out so beautifully, it really inspires me to keep at it!

thanks! he thinks it's girly, but i LOVE it on him. it looks so good with his red hair!

AnarchyCupcakes, keep at it! i probably redid the first half at least a dozen times! first without the cables, then i learned cabling and redid the entire thing. you'll have to post your first completed project too Smiley

Your stitches are so even! And your tension is so consistent!
Great work!
Did you have a pattern?
