I knit a sweater, using this tutorial! http://knitting-up-a-storm.blogspot.com/2007/04/5-in-paris.html

It's such an easy sweater! It's my second completed one, but I have to take in the collar of my first, so no pictures of it yet Wink



Blurry picture taken in a mirror in a hall in my dorm, ha! I'm really proud of how it came out Smiley

I used simply soft, took about one and a half skeins of each color.
The tutorial doesn't tell you how to do long sleeves, but I just picked up 8 stitches and began knitting in the round, decreasing one every 7 rows for about half the sleeve length. Also, I did a bit of the 'optional side shaping' you see later in the pattern




A little closer on the stripes...


Again, this pattern is SO easy and pretty, if you have ever wanted to try sweaters and were intimidated, I suggest starting here! This only took about 5 days to make!
I really want to make V-Neck sweaters, so if anyone knows any good tutorials or patterns please link me!

I love the shape and design of that jumper. It could be either off the shoulder or on, wonderful.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

This is beautiful, you did a great job.  Maybe one day I'll learn to knit, but I don't see it in my foreseeable future.  It could happen though.
