My First Sweater!

Recently, I finished knitting my first sweater. It was a present for a friend, and I've included a pic below of her modeling it. It really wasn't that hard - I made it from the Stitch 'N Bitch cowl pattern - nor did it take as long as I expected. Of course, that's mostly because it's garter stitch...The hardest part was figuring out how to sew it together, as my expertise is definitely in knitting, not sewing. Let me know what you think!

Project Update

Somehow, they've managed to stack up again! Here's what I'm working on:

I might get my yarns into a store across from Grand Central...yay! Those are priority.
Box stitch scarf
Green and white scarf
2 types of wrist warmers
clutch purse with aran stitches
blue shawl

Now, for the rest:
Red and Black scarf
Hedgehog (wow, this one's been around for a while...)
Irish Armwarmers
Kid's toy
Toy for my fiance
Kitty bed (finish)
red and white pillow

Wow, it's annoying when you lose your camera...I'm making these legwarmers for a friend and wanted to take photos of them along the way, but unfortunately I had misplaced my camera. Thankfully, I discovered it two days ago, so I can post these photos now.
