Oh I love it! yours turned out much more attractive than mine, and yeah, it too like 20 hours!



So pretty! I'm so impressed that it's your first sweater--it looks amazing! That pattern has been on my to-knit list for aaages. I love the color yarn you used. :)

I say go for it with the lacy yoke blouse! I actually started knitting that one up earlier this year, but frogged it because I didn't like it with my yarn. ;) (I'm so changeable!)

Very cute sweater!


This sweater is darling! I'm so happy to have found your blog. Can't wait for more :D

I taught myself to knit a few months ago, but can only follow the very simplest of patterns (however, I can crochet just about anything!)

Do you find that, because they're in pieces, vintage patterns might be easier for a beginner like me?

Evelyn - I prefer to work large projects, like a sweater, in pieces because it is easier to transport while you are making it. I've also noticed that my tension when I knit in the round and when I knit flat are different and it shows in a work that uses both (like a sweater), so I prefer to work flat for this reason as well. I'm not one who minds seaming-up a project, but there are some who hate it. It comes down to preference and your knitting style. With that said, if you are ready to break into a sweater pattern, I would suggest this one, just make sure to read it through all the way; there are some directions that are not worded well!
