My very first sweater!!!! (don't look Mom)

I have finished my first sweater. Well.....almost! I still have to weave in the loose ends and block it. I have come a long way baby!!! I started with scarves a few years ago, have many millions of them. Made a gazillion hats too. Maybe a dozen felted purses, then socks! And now I can add a sweater to my list! I picked an easy pattern that is knit from the top down and is basically knit in one piece so you don't have to sew up any seams. It took me a few weeks to complete but now I can't wait to make another! Once I fix all the loose ends and block it I will post a better photo! UPDATE: The pattern is by Knitting Pure & Simple and is called Split neck T Shirt for Women # 257 Here is a link to their site...it's down in the middle http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/page2.html

This is really pretty. Can't believe this is called an "easy" pattern. You have come a long way... Bonnie in WI (rubberstamp list)

Good job, Joan!!!
I used to knit when I was a teenager. That was the first craft I did (back in Germany), besides latch hook with my parents. Then I cross-stitched and quilted before starting to stamp. Stamping is so fast, it's hard to go back to the other more time intensive crafts.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

Oh Joan, that sweater is GREAT!!
I'm jealous- haven't been able to get the "knack" of knitting (my very 1st craft was crochet, so different from knitting)

IT IS WONDERFUL!

Very nice, Joan! Don't you feel great when you accomplish something new? I wonder if you could share where you got the pattern. You may have mentioned it earlier but I can't find it. Thanks for sharing!
