My first sweater…

I knit this sweater over the summer for some friends of mine that were expecting in the fall.

This was the first sweater that I ever knitted, and it was so fun to do.  I learned a ton, and I loved working on it.  The weekend before I gifted it to the expecting parents, I spent 8 hours working on the embroidery, setting in the sleeves and doing things like weaving in ends, and I loved every second of it.  I think the fact that I actually started/finished a project surprised him almost as much as my friends.

So today, I got to see my sweater as a true Finished Object (FO).  Little Miss was finally big enough this week to fit into it.  It feels amazing to know that something I made could actually be used.
