This is the first finished knitting project I ever made, that is wearable in public  Grin Shocked
I am so proud. I have made one other sweater before but it's a wear-at-home-project. It's too home-made looking, if you know what I mean.....
Anyways lets talk about this one. I can actually wear this outside for people to see.
It's from the same book I made this bolero from, that I recently posted here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419089.0
It was an easy knit, perfect as a first time project. It is knitted in one piece so no lining up pieces etc. (this is what went wrong with said first sweater...) and all you need to know is how to knit and purl.
I'm so please with this and wear it a lot at the moment as it's freezing here in the UK.
work in progress. The picture is the design in the book.



I think I'm ready for a project with a few more detail now.

I think it looks lovely.  Since I can't knit, I'm even more impressed, lol.

The jumper is lovely!  It looks very cosy.  I am going to have to look out for the pattern book!
