My first sweater

Decided to tackle a sweater for me. Found this simple pattern (except for the long purl rows!) Had dropped shoulders. Seaming felt like it took forever! Turned out too big, makes me look overweight. Don't like how the neck turned out, can see where the ends join. Now sits on the Goodwill pile. :-)

Personally, I think it looks wonderful!


My first sweater was supposed to be for my wife - it turned out big enough to fit three of her int he body... but her head (thought normal sized!) didn't fit through the head-hole. It's still sitting in the closet years later waiting to be ripped out (I loved that yarn......)

Grace and Peace,
