The Sweater

The sweater is all done!!! I finished it last night, I even wove in all of the little ends that wouldn't have mattered on the outside but can be seen on the inside.
Overall I am very happy with it, especially since it's the first sweater I have made (that was not for an infant I mean). Having never made a sweater before I think I did pretty darned good, especially considering I made the yarn too. Knowing what I know now there are a few changes I might make (like adding some shaping to the waist and perhaps making it a touch longer and the neckline an inch or two lower) next time should I use the pattern again. I also realize I am not a size 36 but that is ok, I like my sweaters a little large anyway. There is just enough room in the sleeves that wearing a decently thick shirt underneath does not cause bulk or bunching at the underarms and elbows.

So there you have it, a sweater made almost 'from scratch' (I will consider it made from scratch when I have washed, carded and dyed the wool too).

Now, I need to find something to spin...
