 Here's my first knitted sweater.  I made it with my Bond Incredible Sweater machine.  I put crochet edging on all the edges, I still have to do a final blocking of it and sew in the zipper.  It was designed using the trial download of the Knitware program.  http://www.knitware.ca/download.htm   I totally recommend this software, it's really cool.  You can use it to design machine knit, hand knit, or crocheted items.  There are a bunch of sleeve styles, neckline styles, etc. to choose from.  You can do backless halter styles and all sorts of stuff.  You enter the gauge that you get, and it figures the stitches from there, so you don't have to worry about matching gauge and such.  I only have the trial version, but I'm definately planning to buy the full version as soon as possible.  I'm not sure what the differences between them are even, but I figure the person who made it deserves my money just for making such easy fun pattern making software.

That looks great! I may check out knitware... For now I've just been looking at multiple patterns and doing a bunch of math when I want to make something that's a little different. Congratulations!

Fabulous job, BeppyCat! I guess I have to go trawl eBay and find a machine . . . wonder how I can sneak that one past my husband. Probably have to promise him an action figure or somehting Tongue.

Hi everyone!

Glad you like the sweater.  I can't wait to see what else machine knitters are doing.

It is made of Homespun from Lion Brand.  I figured that since my niece is three, I'd use an easy care yarn for it and make things easier on my sister.  I had to waste some yarn to be sure to start each section at the right part of the color sequence so it would have the pink bands in similar places on the fronts and sleeves.  I didn't get it perfectly, but I guess it's better than having it reversed or something.  Or maybe that's just my anal nature coming out.   Wink
