What are you most proud of? This really was my first sweater! Prior to this, I had only knitted scarves and 1 baby blanket. I love sewing clothes, and I'm finding knitting garments to be equally thrilling!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Stick with it! You'll be so glad you muddled past the beginner blues, because it gets so fun.

Love this! It looks great on you! And all the greenery in the background makes me miss Austin -- I lived there for 15 years. Now I live in a place that's been relentlessly covered in snow all winter :(

Oh goodness! I can't even imagine. I'm a native Texan, and think I'd turn into a Popsicle.

Great combination- the color, 3/4 sleeve & buttons work so well together!

I follow your sewing blog so was excited to see you on here just now! I am knitting this pattern also...but I made it 1/2 sleeve and in 100% cotton in anticipation of wearing it in our hot Alabama summer.
