I finished my first real…

I finished my first real knit, a pinwheel sweater for my niece, Brooke! I'm pretty happy with how it came out (modelled by Kavi):

If I do it again (and I think I probably will, for Kavi), I'd change two things -- do the afterthought heel for the armholes (as they suggest on Ravelry) instead of the extremely confusing provisional cast-on, and make the loops on my crocheted edge (a change already from the suggested I-cord) a little bigger. But overall, very happy with the project! It took exactly one month, start to finish.

    Wow! It looks fantastic. And not just because the model is so cute (and so big!!!).

    I do know basic knit, purl. But all I’ve been also to do is a scarf. I tried a hat once, and it came out *all wrong*! I would love help. I think I often just don’t get how to interpret patterns properly.


  2. I LOVE it!!! I like it more than the one in the book you got the pattern from. Kavi is the perfect model. Beautiful.

    I finally managed to finish that hat you helped me with. At 11:30 last night, I thought I was going to be headed over there today to get your help. Again. But I managed. I posted on Ravelry if you want to view.

    Congrats on finishing the hat! It looks great — very manly. I ought to make Kevin a hat, but I’m making myself one first. 🙂

    Thanks everyone for the nice words. Definitely a big part of the fun of knit/crochet for me is getting praise for the finished piece! 🙂
