|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||Worsted (10 ply)|
|Style||Traditional, Classic, Romantic, Casual|
What materials did you use? I used #4 no name yarn from, ahem, Wal-Mart. I was trapped in the woods with no crafting store nearby! They didn't carry Lion's Brand. I thought it would still work, to practice my first sweater. It did, I made an XS, which fits beautifully.
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.
