My first sweater

I finally learned how to follow a knitting pattern for sweaters. I made all too many scarves, tube tops and hats, so i felt it was time to move up to sweaters. I also haven't had too much experience following a pattern, so i picked up my Stitch n Bitch Nation and found this

cute sweater that i thought i would actually wear.
While i didn't follow the pattern word for word (of course not!), and i had some problems when i had to switch yarns, make the sleeves, and i ran out of yarn, in the end i'm pretty happy with my job. And i actually wear it. I just wish the picture could do it justice!

What a snazzy sweater! I really like the neckline. Maybe between you and thimble I can finally finish the cardigan I tried to make a year and a half ago.
