Who needs a degree, I can knit my own clothes bitches!!!!

So I just finished knitting my first sweater.



Wrap sweater, 100% 4 ply cotton. Pattern came from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation.

Its my first sweater, and when it was first finished, it was WAY too big...it could be that my knitting stitches are way too loose. I ended taking in about an inch and a half all over.

Its NOT an immaculate piece, its bulky around the armpits and there are parts that are held together with safety pins.

But dammit, I'm wearing this thing as much as possible!!!!

Looks pretty good.

Protip: make scarfs and chose darker colors, lots of people would buy them.

thanks Not many plans for selling my projects at the moment, but I'm tempted to start knitting more turtles! (I've made 3 already).

I'm working on a scarf at the moment with the leftover yarn from the sweater, a nice delicate lace design.

Next project is gonna be a teenage mutant ninja turtle gettup for my sheldon turtle pattern; gonna try to keep it as simple as possible. Plus, my mom found an old book of crochet patterns that had this HIDEOUS pattern for a crochet angel...we're going to tweak it so its not so ugly...I usually don't do that kind of decor but my mom wants one really badly so I'll give it a shot.
