Holy shit, I knit a sweater!


best shot I could get of the front

shot taken w/ the help of SuperC!!

so I've done it..I've knit my first EVER sweater! Am I happy with it? Yes..overjoyed? Not entirely..and I will definitely be making this one again with some more mods to it..also, being a fairly new knitter, I didn't have any idea wat the acrylic yarn would do..It's uber stretchy..but I think that's alright for now.

Now i'm off to finish NanaKate's bebeh blanket!
