I finished the back of my sweater, and am pleased with the way it turned out. I've posted a link to the picture.
I'll get started on the front after supper this evening. I'm hoping to have it finished by November. I'm using size 11 needles, so that shouldn't be a problem. I've discovered that I really dislike working with anything bigger than a size 9 needle and prefer a 7 or smaller.
I'm relatively new to knitting. I find it very relaxing, especially in the car while riding along country roads. I started knitting scarves and small throws and now I am currently knitting baby booties and a bonnet for my partners sister. She's having twin girls around Dec. or Jan. I've all of a sudden developed in interest in baby clothes. I don't know if anyone has the same problems I do with making things for people but I feel I'm giving a part of me away. It's hard to part with some of my creations.
