My first sweater.

Pattern: Zephyr Style Wicked
Size: M
Yarn: Cascade 220 (4.5 skeins)
Color: 7821
Needles: Denise/bamboo DPNs US 9/5.5 mm
Ravelry link

It's finished. For a first sweater attempt, I'm happy. I don't know if I love it. It'll need to grow on me. It appears to be a little bulkier than I thought, but it's comfortable. Now I know what to expect for the next sweater attempt.

That's quite an accomplishment!

I like it. It may be bulky, but it look perfect for those really cold days.

It turned out very cute! And it's not an easy project for a first-time sweater.

Isn't it wonderful to get the first sweater complete so you have the confidence to cast-on for the next one.
