yes! i finally finished it! it took me about three weeks, but i actually started a few times over again.

as i didn't have a real pattern, i used my mom's advice and a lot of measuring to make out the size and all.

the color combo may seem a bit weird, my dad even called it 'psychedelic'. but that's okay, cause i like psychedelic music...  Wink



in action!

That's great!  I love it, and impressive that you did it without a pattern.  If only I can get passed my fear of sweaters and long knitting projects.  I've only done scarves, hats, shawls, and bags.  I'm an instant gratification gal!

Wow!  I'm trying to work out what my 1st sweater should be...
It fits you perfectly!  Advantages of designing by your own measurements, hey?  I wish I was brave enough to do that, but, not having my mum in the near vicinity to advise, I don't quite dare!

I love the colors too- impressive that you did that without a pattern!  Is that metallic yarn?  What yarn did you use? Looks really cool.

That is a very well done first sweater (or tenth for that matter)! I never would have guessed it was your first. I so impressed that you didn't even use a pattern. My first sweater made me look like a rainbow sherbet colored mohair gorilla!! Undecided

I like the colors and that's an awesome first sweater! I wish my mom could help me with my knitting, but instead I get to make her pretty things that she always appreciates (even if I don't think they look great).

thank you so much for your praise!

spirals420: well, i'm very much into the mars volta, led zeppelin, early pink floyd...

lulubeans & pixelpusher: i used a yarn called 'charlotte' by 'filatura di crosa' (i guess it's italian), imported by 'lana grossa' but only for germany, so i don't know if that helps you in any way.

it's neither sparkly nor metallic but a kinda tweed yarn made from a wool/mohair/acrylic blend.
