Do the happy dance, do the happy dance!

This is the first sweater that I've ever done. It took me a little less than 3 weeks I think.



I used the pattern "Top secret" from knitty.com

And of course, an action shot.



It's so soft and fuzzy, I'm still wearing it! C&C always welcome!

Ooooh! This looks so flattering on you also! I can't wait to do my first garment! You did a great job and yes, the colorway looks awesome! Is that a Boucle you used? Gorgeous!
What an awesome accomplishment!

You did such a great job--and if that is joann's Rainbow Boucle (it looks like it), then you are double awesome, that is tough to work with !!

Love the sweater, love the color, so pretty!

It is Jo-Ann's Rainbow Boucle, and OMG it was such a pain sometimes to work with. I made a fair amount of changes to the original pattern (like making it longer and giving it bell sleeves).

My fiance's the one who picked out the color, and boy-howdy did he do a good job! I got 3 huge balls of it and only used just over one. My mom wants a hat out of some of it, but I'm at a loss as to what to make with it next?!

Thank you to all for the wonderful comments! My roommate has now started her own version of this sweater, same yarn and all, but in a gorgeous blue colorway. I'll be interested to see how different the two are, cause she knits really tight and I knit loose.

AH I'm so jealous! I've been trying for the life of me to finish at least ONE knitted garment but generally end up froggin the poor things and making accessories instead. So sad. But yours looks fabulous!!!
