This is my first try at knitting a sweater and it went a lot better than I had expected, except that it turned out way too big for my boyfriend, so we felted it until it fit. and now its both wind- and waterproof Smiley

Looks great and felting it was an awesome idea. It looks so snuggly.

Beautiful! Err... handsome?  The colors you chose are fabulous! Good for you for trying felting: it is always hard to get gauge with these projects, usually because I have a very different gauge for the plain stockinette to the stranded portion.
