Finished First Sweater!

Hi! I finished my first sweater about a week ago and forgot to post it on here. Now, of course, I am moving on to a new sweater which this time is for me. I created this sweater from the knitty.com pattern Saranac and made it for my mom hence the color choices. It might be a bit big for her, but she tends to shrink things anyway so it will all work out. Also, I didn't add a zipper because I cannot sew...seriously I've broken each machine I tried to use.
More photos, etc. on my ravelry account "joshvtknit"

Looks great! Will she model it for us too do you think? (BTW, personally wouldn't even toy with the idea of adding zippers - it would be a disaster!)

I love the multi-color edging with the solid body, that's something which has not occured to me. And I love the color combinations. Well done! (If your mother doesn't like it, send it to me).

Very nice job!
