My first sweater is done! For Christmas, Karen gave me a pattern book, yarn and all the necessary needles to make a sweater. And now it's done! I'm really pleased. It turned out very well. I feel so proud. Like I'm now a real knitter.
(edited to add: I made it a size 2, since I didn't know how long it would take me. It won't fit Kate until next winter. Alas.)
