I've finally finished the sweater I started back in October. Darn school, work and Holidays getting in the way of knitting. (pun mildly intended.)
Again, this is the V-Neck Down Pull Over #247 from Knitting Pure and Simple
Simply put (did it again...) I love this sweater. I love the huge neck, love that it's big and comfy, and that if the sweater isn't warm enough, it's roomy enough for a long sleeved shirt under, but still fits nicely.
The one thing I'm not overly happy with is the neck itself. Pattern called for only one row of purling before binding off, but the way I did the increases along the neck left "holes" that I had to go below, so I ended up doing 5 rows or so. If I was going to do it over, I'd garter stitch it, and do some decreases at the point of the V.
But other than that, I'm really happy with it. Not bad for a 3rd project. More info and notes on my Ravelry, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
