My 11 year old goddaughter taught me to knit in August and this is the first sweater I've made for myself. The pattern is the Millet from the Rowan Tapestry book and I used Berocco Ultra Light Alpaca yarn.
Overall, I'm happy with the sweater but I would probably like it better if it was slightly longer and the sleeves were a little less full. I knit it using US 3 and US 6 needles which was a bit challenging for a beginning knitter. Despite the minor complaints I have with the finished sweater it was definitely a confidence builder.
