My first adult sweater was from berroco.  I do not recall having any issues with it, so it must have been good. 
The sweater I made was a funnel neck raglan with some bulky self striping yarn.  The yarn was beautiful and soft, but I paid $100 for the pattern and yarn together.
Was it worth $100?  No, but it did turn out well, and I try to make everything into a learnig experience.  That was my first and only big splurge.  I gave the sweater to my mother though, and I know she appreciated it.

I made a sleeveless version of Tatania from berocco.com, but am going to go back and make sleeves for it after all. My only problem with it is that it's allover ribbing, which is not the most flattering thing ever on me.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

I did the little Suede baby moccasins (Bethany Booties, pattern is available free on the website) and they came out great!  I thought the pattern was easy to read, and Berroco seems to be very good about making corrections when errors are found.

I made the Paulina pattern (shown here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49161.0), and while the instructions were easy to follow, I did find that in order to make it fit the way I wanted, I had to knit it as both a size smaller than the instructions indicated and a tighter gauge.  The other modifications I made were fairly easy to spot as things I didn't like in the original pattern (a length that would have turned the thing into a dress, and eyelets that just didn't suit the overall look of the piece).  That said, it wasn't actually very hard to make -- which is quite a compliment, given that this was my first successful sweater, and it certainly hasn't dissuaded me from selecting other Berroco patterns I'd like to make -- but rather than slavishly following the pattern, I'll probably approach them with an eye towards modifications if the instructions start to make me nervous while I'm knitting.
