February Lady Sweater Complete!

Ta-daa! There she is in all her red hot February lady sweater. I did enjoy knitting this sweater, my first by the way. There were a few scary moments, such as when I forgot to count, or when I forgot what the multiples of seven were. But all in all, I enjoyed this project. Think I will make one for my mom after the holidays. I can't do this pattern back to back, too boring. So here are the dirty details.

Project: February Lady sweater

Yarn: Caron Simply soft, about 3.25 skeins (which I liked knitting with, plus easy maintenance)

Needle size: 8 bamboo for the most part

Size: large

Now on to my next sweater! Have a great week chickees!

    I know what you mean by boring knitting. Wicked has lots of boring parts. Lots!

  7. Love it! And very impressive for a first sweater. Great job!

  8. Oooh, how lovely! I think the only sweaters I've ever finished were for babies. I want to make something sweater-like for me, but I don't know that I'd ever finish it. I have one or two sitting around that are almost finished but I haven't touched them in 5 years. Mainly because they're wool turtlenecks, and I cannot wear a turtleneck any more. Good ol' menopause.
