Here is my first sweater i knitted - took four months, but I finished! i am really happy with the results, and it was perfect to wear today as the weather has turned chilly.
Paul, I love this sweater you made. Very classic! Just like other things in life ;), you will never forget your first time or the first garment you knitted. BTW, what type of yarn did you use?
Hi John - thanks! I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted - great to work with.
That is a great sweater! What pattern did you use? It does indeed look very BR. :)
thanks! I used # 247 V Neck Down Pullover for Men by Diane Soucy - my lys said it was a good one for a beginner. Very easy top down knitted in the round...
That is a great sweater! Very Republic looking!
what a great job! and a perfect fit. I love the depth of the V
Outstanding!! Congrats on a job "well done".....
Beautifully done! I haven't gotten up the courage to do a sweater yet...with the work lined up ahead of me, if I start one now it will be done just as it gets too warm to wear sweaters....:/
Wonderful. Well done.
wow - thanks guys for all the compliments! I meticulously kept track of each row on the sleeves b/c I didn't want to end up with one shorter/longer - you should see my knitting notebook! LOL thanks again- your compliments keep me inspired!
Nothing like starting at the top!
...can't wait to see what you do next...how do you top perfection?
Congratulations Paul, it looks a really good fit.
That is a great first sweater. You should indeed be very proud.
Excellent job. A bright future in knitting for you
Very nice job! I can't believe this is your first sweater...you should of seen my first one :)
Excellent job for your first. Very professional!
It fits so well, no puckers or saggies. Terrific job.
First sweater, is it?
That's great Paul, nicely done. Looks like a nice fit too.
Holy Crap! That's nice.
How'd you get the sleeves to be the same length? Did you say first sweater? :-)
Seriously, great job!
Congratulations. The sweater is wonderful. I hope it is the first of many.
Seriously. I will now never show my first sweater on here. Thanks... But it is fantastic work.
I did show my first sweater on here Q, but it didn't look anywhere near that nice.
HOLY MACKEREL PAUL!!! I cannot believe that is your first sweater!!! It's so handsome. You should be very, very proud! Enjoy wearing it. Really, really beautiful! I'm in awe....seriously.
