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.
