What are you most proud of? I am new to knitting and this is my first sweater after only knitting a bundle of cowls. Whale and Anchor chart here: http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/12/knitting-a-custom-yoke-sweater/

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to change your stitch and row gauge if you are new to knitting (unless you're awesome at math).

This is so well done. I love the curve at the waist and your motifs. I also like the way you did the collar line. Very nice.

Your sweater is amazing. . . Now I want to make it. My Dad is a sailor and my Husband and fisherman. . . I can't imagine a better sweater for the two best guys in my life! Where did you find the motifs?

Thanks :) This does sound right up your alley! I just made up the motifs, but there's a rough pattern here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/other/whales--anchors-knitting-design/77872 I tried to fit these motifs into Amy Detjen's Custom Yoke Sweater class pattern. Depending on your size/gauge, you might have to alter the pattern by a few stitches to make it bigger/smaller.
