Ok Here it is!!

Warning, warning, Danger Will Robinson----

I take the worst pictures and as you can see DH isn't much better. My shirt under the sweater should have been smoothed out -- I should try to stand non-lopsided (my shoulder drops on the side I broke and I never realized just how much) And now you all will know just how super sized I am and that when I say I am whiter than white I really, really mean it! That really is the color of my hair and skin.




The sleeves are a bit long - and I bound off the sleeve on the right side nice and tight (something I will not do again) so that one is not stretchy at all. But other than that I don't think it is too bad for a first try.

Bravo! ...and on a first cardigan no less.

It looks great on you too. You should have a cookie and a cup of tea now while you bask in the glow of your accomplishment.

It`s a gorgeous jacket/cardigan, it looks great on you and it fits. Don`t be so modest!

(And there`s nothing wrong with being "supersized"...so am I. That jacket would fit me just fine, so if you decide you don`t want it you know where to send it. ;-) )

muy excellente!!

I want to do a sweater so badly, but it is a challenge in that I know I could only wear it a time or two a year. Maybe I need to let you inspire me to let that not matter and get my butt aknitting.

Thank you all so much -- I really wish there were a way to set it up that I could email each of you to say thanks rather than a group thank you here.

Be-U-Tee-Ful +++. That's one sweater that's going to see a lot of use. Great colors, and I never would have known it's your first sweater.

Stunning, I say! You look great! Nobody's looking at your blouse when you have on that killer sweater. Right on.
