Look! A finished sweater!
This is my first big project, and I'm so happy with the finished result. I've worn it all day, and it is amazingly warm! Merino really is a miracle fibre.
I found this pattern really quite easy. The instructions are brief, but easy to understand. It's a simple cable stitch with a few increases and decreases. I didn't make any changes to the pattern, for two reasons:
-I've never knit a sweater before, so I didn't want to go messing about with things I didn't understand
-I loved all the pictures that I've seen of other knitter's projects.
Now that I've knit this one up, I have plans to make another one, but switching the regular cable to a braided one.
When I put on this sweater, I felt like a 1940's college girl, so I thought I'd pose with a book. Plus it gave me something to do with my hands, to avoid the awkward new blogger thing.
I love that this sweater works with my little Scotty Dog brooch.
