My First Knit Sweater

We've had a cold front moving through this past week (yay! I love being out of the triple digits!) and I've been able to pull out some cold weather outfits (or at least cooler weather). And I discovered my first non-scarf knitting project. I made this for Sadie when I was around three months pregnant (winter 2007-2008). It was the first time I'd knit anything other than a straight line back and forth (I only knew how to knit, it took me a while to figure out how to purl!) and I poured over this book and finally figured out how to read knitting notations.

Here it is, my first sweater:

Of course, Maggie is almost too big for it. At least she got to squeeze into it once though!

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
