my first sweater.

I am done. DONE!



Took me a little over three months. I got side tracked by some other things, so it's not like I was knitting that for three months straight. But I started sometime in September. I do, however, think I lost at least a month on the yoke. Pretty...



but a total pain in my butt. I had to undo so much, then redo, then undo...it makes me all frustrated just thinking about it.

Best news? It actually fits. You see, since most of my body is a medium, but my chest is a large ( I know, hubba hubba), I did some changes to the pattern. I had no idea what I was doing. Or at least, I thought I didn't. But surprisingly, it looks pretty good. I don't have a picture of me wearing it, so you'll just have to take my word for it. It's much harder to take a good picture of yourself in a sweater than a hat. Maybe I'll have Jay snap a picture this weekend.

But it's done. Thank god. That took forever.
