What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of switching between continental and the "throwing" method of knitting. I'm using synthetic yarn (I know, I know), but for my first sweater, I didn't want to invest in a more pricey material (and it wasn't available). I'm excited to build the confidence to make things I'll be able to wear. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it stitch by stitch....I didn't realize how easy beginning a sweater could be! I can't wait until I advance by using short rows to shape more flattering sweaters! This pattern is really easy so far. I finished the back within only 2 days.
