On my bucket list was "Knit a sweater." Seriously. I had given myself until I am 70 to get that done. Because, I'm a really slow knitter and I also have a habit of losing interest in large projects.
I guess I'm ahead of schedule? :-)
I finished it earlier in the week, but neither the weather nor available models were very cooperative. I assured her we are interested in looking at the sweater and not her. ;-)
Pattern is Berroco Aidez. Yarn is Rowan Cocoon.
Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. I think it's a pretty good attempt considering it's my first sweater. There is a little wonkiness at the collar (because I made a mistake somewhere), but I worked it out enough I think I'll live. Looks a little big on her, because she is little and I didn't knit it for her. Still, I think she could easily pull it off if she "borrowed" it. It's heavy. And warm. And a little itchy which means we probably won't wear it over just a cami. -)
The joy of actually completing an entire sweater was so overwhelming I was forced to begin another. I will say I am enjoying not having to count with this one. There's something soothing about making row after row of stockinette stitch? I will also say I am in LOVE with this yarn.
